Prayer Before Bed

I wanted to share this prayer before retiring from the 1966 movie, A Man For All Seasons.

Dear Lord,
give us rest tonight
or if we must be wakeful, cheerful;
careful only for our soul's salvation.
For Christ's sake,

Thanks for sharing this. I am compiling a few bed-time prayers.

You're welcome, guys!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
