10:00 PM

From A Diary of Private Prayer by John Baillie:

Into Thy care, O Father, I commend our children's bodies and souls. All day long You have watched over them, now let them go through no part of this night unaccompanied by Thee.

Give them sound and refreshing sleep,
Give them safety from all perils,
Give them freedom from restless dreams,
Give them control of their thoughts if they should lie awake,
Give them wisdom to remember that the night was made for sleeping and not for harboring of anxious or shameful or fretful thoughts.
