    Before I close my eyes in slumber
    I must take time to have a talk with God

    Father as I lay down for the night
    I lay down all my burdens at your feet
    With the expectation that you can handle it

    Father forgive me all of my trangressions
    And shortcomings of today and beyond
    I try to be that which you call me to be
    But there are times when I step out of you
    Tryingto make it happen under my own steam

    Father I ask that you do what only a God can do
    I ask that you meet me at my point of need
    If anyone walked out of my life today for good
    Help me to understand it's all part of your plan
    If my finances have yet to come together
    Help me to know that you able to meet all my needs
    If is not time for my storm to be over just yet
    Help me to grow through and not just go through
    If when you examine my heart it is not pure
    Help me to love unconditionally like you love me
    If my mind has lost focus on that which is important
    Help me to concentrate on the tasks you've assigned to me

    Father as I lay down for a much needed rest
    I ask that you embrace me in your loving arms
    And instill in me a perfect peace and serenity
    In your matchless name, I pray, amen and amen
