Evening Prayer ~ Blessed

Father God,

As I prepare to shut down my body for the night, I praise you for this recently spent day; a day filled with blessings:
~ Breath after breath
~ The love of my family
~ Food
~ Clean water
~ Fresh air
~ Smiling children

And You, oh God.

There are many more blessings I could name, but You get the point. You are a giving God and You give good gifts; far better than I could ever hope to give to my children. So I praise You and thank You.

As I sleep tonight may You place Your hedge of protection around me and my family; protecting us from evil.

Grant us good dreams.
Grant us restful sleep.
Grant us peace.

May I wake up tomorrow ready to chose You again and follow You with all my heart; obeying Your commands and bringing glory to Your holy name.

All praise and glory and worship to You, oh God, through Jesus Christ my Lord.
