Bedtime Prayers

Be angry and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent.  Psalm 4:4

In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8

"One purpose for our bed in the night is to ponder in our hearts what troubles us and to speak such tings to God.  We entrust to him now what we pray the morning will relieve with fresh hope.  Sleep results.  Sleep is a Sabbath-like act.  We rest from it all and leave it all for God's keeping while we lie motionless in the world for a while."  ~ Zack Eswine, Sensing Jesus
