Sunbonnet Sue Praying

She is kneeling at her bedside and saying her nightly prayer.
This is Pam's.

This is my older one.

An evening prayer from Martin Luther in his Small Catechism.

I thank Thee, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son, that Thou hast graciously kept me this day; and I pray Thee that Thou wouldst forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this night.  For into Thy hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things.  Let Thy holy angel be with me, that the wicked Foe may have no power over me.  Amen.

Then go to sleep at once and in good cheer.
