Thank you for today and its lessons. As I surrender myself to sleep, help me cleanse myself of striving and struggle. Help me find rest and renewal.

Give me this night your perfect gift of sleep.

Bedtime Shema

Here, poised between waking and sleep, I give up strife and contention. Help me forgive bedtlme who have wounded me today and those I have failed to forgive for past hurts. May they too have a night of rest and restoration. I release myself from the bonds of grudges and envy and my body from stress and contraction.


I close my eyes, trusting in your forgiveness where I have fallen short today. Merciful One, Watch and keep me throughout this night. Count my every breath as prayer.
