Prayer at Night

It’s a child’s bedtime prayer, but I think it’s good for any child of God…

Angel, Guardian, keep and preserve all of us from every evil, sickness, and grief.

Help us, O Lord, to be good, obedient, and kind.

I thank thee, O Lord, for all good things thou hast sent to me during the past day. Let me spend this night in peace, and protect me from all harm. Amen.

I’m going to spend some time with this one come end of August. I hope you will join me.

[Prayer from A Manual of Eastern Orthodox Prayers, Crestwood, New York: Saint Vladimir’s Seminary Press, 1991, p. 16]
