Father we love you and thank you for each breath we take. We thank you for guiding us and comforting us with your peace which goes beyond anything we can imagine and even attempt to describe. You are so awesome and your love is so overwhelming.
You are truly our best friend! You sing over us daily. You rejoice over us with gladness and frankly, we are amazed. We recognize that in ourselves, we are not worthy of Your affections, but for some reason, you have given your Son as your redeemer and to purchase our salvation.
As we sleep tonight, we invite your Spirit to instruct us even more about you Kingdom and what our part is in reaching the world around us. Encamp your angels around us to watch over our thoughts, dreams and imaginations. Let nothing disturb our sleep, and instead, allow us to wake refreshed and renewed in spirit, soul and body.
And Father, we recognize that there a many who must work through the night. Nurses, policemen, postal workers, truck drivers or whoever they are, keep them safe. Allow them to also be renewed in spirit, soul and body. Empower them with your Spirit to fulfill their tasks successfully and joyfully. ~Nickolas Hiemstra
