A Prayer Before Sleep   Leave a comment

O Holy Jesus, who had no place to lay your head, watch with me in the night hours, I pray you; calm my fears and relieve my anxieties with the blessed gift of sleep; give me your peace and grant that I may wake up refreshed in your service; who with the Father and the Holy Spirit rules all things.  Amen.

–Father Robert N. Rodenmayer (1909-1979), U.S. Episcopal Priest

Quoted in The Communion of Saints:  Prayers of the Famous, edited by Horton Davies (Grand Rapids, MI:  Eerdmans, 1990), p. 130
