Years and years ago, I began a nighttime ritual of prayer. I made up the prayer below which I say nightly. It may not work for you, but it does for me. I just thought I’d share it today since it was Sunday. I find peace in my life through prayer. I think the power of prayer is great for all who find strength in praying.
Please keep all of my friends, all of my relatives, the people I like, the people I dislike, the people I know and the people I don’t know, happy, safe, healthy and alive, blessed, loved, wanted, taken care of and cared for through today which is Sunday, Sunday night, Monday, Monday night, Tuesday, Tuesday night, Wednesday, Wednesday night, Thursday, Thursday night, Friday, Friday night, Saturday, Saturday night and next Sunday and next Sunday night.
Please forgive us for all of the sins we have done, we are doing and we will do. God I love you with all of my heart. Dear Lord please watch over us all and guide us and bless us. Help us to be better Christians. Help us to love, honor and obey all of your commandments. If any of us should die, please let us go to Heaven to be with you.
Thank you for all of the blessings you have bestowed on me, my family, my friends and my loved ones. Please continue to bless us all. Please continue to watch over us and guide us. Amen.
