A Child’s Bedtime Prayer

Thoughts from Mark "Hat" Rackley

Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them.

  • Matthew 19:13a

Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue from evil
and your lips from telling lies.
Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

  • Psalm 34:11-14

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

  • Proverbs 22:6

“Before I lay me down to sleep,
I give myself to Christ to keep.
Four corners to my bed,
four Angels overspread;
One at the head, one at the feet,
and two to guard me while I sleep.
I go by sea, I go by land,
the Lord made me with His right hand.
