Little prayers to meditate upon before sleep -
"Before I close my eyes tonight
I thank you Lord with all my might
For my friends and neighbors, too
For everyone that's in my school
And keep my family in your heart
And may I remember
We're never apart."
"For peace on earth
Dear Lord I pray
May all earth's children
Live free one day."
"As I slumber in my bed
Keep my angels overhead
And with the dawning of the day
Angels can then
Watch me play."
"Dear guardian angel
Be with me here
Keep careful watch
Till morning is near."
"Lord, keep me safe
While dark is the night
And may I awaken
To bright morning light."
As a follow up activity after reading these bedtime prayers with your children, have them draw pictures to illustrate each, and collate the pages into a little prayer book for them.
