A Bedtime Prayer~by rldubour




A Bedtime Prayer

As I kneel beside my bed

I hold my hands and bow my head.

I pray for guidance from above.

And to protect the ones I love.


I pray for family and for friends

I pray for peace, before this world ends.

I pray for children one and all

That they are safe while growing tall.


I pray for all that love is shown

I pray for those all left alone.

I pray for sickness to be cured

I pray that pain be just a word.


I pray that violence comes to an end

And learn the meaning of what is a friend.

I pray for loved ones gone ahead

As I hold my hands and bow my head.


If God should take me while I rest

Will my family know I tried my best?

And that I will be watching from above

Forever sending them my love.


I ask for strength while I am here

To give me hope and face my fears.

To give me courage to overcome

What lies before me and not to run.


I thank you Lord for this day

And for my life in every way.

  2. I must say that A Bedtime Story is VERY good. I could feel something inside, like a cold chill.
