Bedtime Prayer on Teak Wood
I first heard this Jewish prayer in The Chosen series! Known as a Bedtime Shema Prayer, it is perfect for your or your children’s bedside table & you can just read it right from your bed! It fills my heart with such peace at bedtime and I know it will yours as well!
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who brings sleep to my eyes, slumber to my eyelids. May it be Your will, Lord my God and God of my ancestors, that I lie down in peace and that I arise in peace. Let my sleep be undisturbed by troubling thoughts, bad dreams, and wicked schemes. May I have a night of tranquil slumber. May I awaken to the light of a new day, that my eyes may behold the splendor of Your light. Praised are You, Lord whose glory gives light to the entire world.
