A Prayer Before Bedtime

As weary eyes retire in sleep
To waltz in rainbow reverie,
Just a pause to offer thanks to
One whose grace is ever near.
 
One who watches,
One who listens
Knowing every thought and need.
Here to guide the lost and tired,
To wipe away each mournful tear.
 
Thankful for each waking breath,
Every makeshift, selfless deed.
Hopeful for tomorrow’s fate
To face the future without fear.
 
Pray for blessings from above
That they might grow from simple seed.
Pray for loved ones. Keep them strong.
Pray for all that they hold dear.
 
May the world find understanding,
Freedom from all hate and greed.
I ask with faith and gratitude,
Please, receive this humble prayer.
