A Bedtime Prayer

This week I have been reviewing some old folders and trying to clean up my study a little bit. I came across this poem that I wrote about ten years ago. I thought I would share it with you.

A Bedtime Prayer

As I retire for the night,
I lift up this prayer with all my might,
“Most Gracious Father, Lord above,
Please watch over the ones I love.
Guide their path and keep them safe,
Let them know Your strong embrace.
Let them feel your love their whole life through,
And let them know I love them too.”

I hope you have a great week. I pray that God will watch over you, protect you, lead you and guide you and pour out His love and grace upon you and the people you love.

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.
