Dear Jesus, it is time for me to go bed.
Please be with me and help me to get to sleep.
Please bless mommy and daddy and all my friends and please bless me too.
Help me to sleep and thank You for my toys and thank You for the fun day that I have had - and thank You for my food.
Thank You for Jesus Who died on the cross and thank You that He rose again from the dead.. and thank You for loving me, even when I do things that are wrong.
Heavenly Father, the increasing violence and wickedness in this world and the terrors that seem to increasingly stalk my path have too often caused me to divert my attention onto my mounting problems instead of looking to Jesus and trusting Your word. Thank You that no matter what happens in this world You have promised to be with me, as my provider and protector - my defence and defender. Thank You for Your indwelling Holy Spirit. Thank You for Your peace that passes understanding. Thank You that I can rest in Your love and praise Your holy name - and thank You that I have been brought into Your family by grace through faith in Jesus - in Whose name I pray, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the example of David, who despite the multitude of enemies that sought his destruction, and in spite of the many trials and tribulations he was called upon to face, remained a man after God's own heart, by trusting You through all the changing scenes of his life. Help me to cast all my cares on You, and to rest in Your love, knowing that You have promised to supply Your sufficient grace in all the trials I may be called upon to face. Help me to depend on You alone and not to rely on my own ingenuity and abilities when facing life's difficulties, so that the life of Christ may be lived in me.. to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
