Father in heaven, hear my prayer
Keep me in Thy loving care
Be my guide in all I do
Bless all those who love me, too.
When K and L were little girls, this was their prayer at bedtime. It led into a whole lot of God blesses: grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, babysitters, kids at the babysitters, neighbors, and family pets. When they really wanted to prolong bedtime, even the goldfish were mentioned by name. I have a hunch the little Lady Bug will be learning this prayer someday, too.
