About the Author
Read an Excerpt
In All Endeavors
In all endeavors
Strive to celebrate
The spirit of the warrior ...
Whether tending to the flower garden
Or searching for the heart of the divine.
These Are The Gifts I Ask
These are the gifts I ask
Of Thee, Spirit serene:
Strength for the daily task,
Courage to face the road,
Good cheer to help me bear the traveler's load,
And, for the hours of rest that come between,
An inward joy of all things heard and seen.

What People are Saying About This
Once again, as she did with GRACES, June Cotner has compiled a beautiful and highly readable book. Let it find a permanent place on your night stand.
Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
I hope Bedside Prayers will give you the comfort of a warm blanket, the inspiration of a shooting star, and reflections for living life well. The book is divided into five sections.
I envision readers will turn to the "Inspiration" chapter when life is going well and they have energy to give to others. The "Comfort" chapter will offer solace during times of disappointment, sadness, and setbacks. A person in a peaceful, contemplative frame of mind might turn to the "Reflections" section. The "Nightfall" chapter should provide the perfect sleep enticement. And the "Morning" chapter will give good and inspiring thoughts on carrying through the day - and offer ideas on how we can kindly give back to others.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a small book that takes up so little space on the nightstand or in the suitcase. Yet I have reached for it again and again over the year both at home and while traveling because it never fails to offer a poignant verse for whatever mood I'm in at the time. This is a lovely source of comfort, solace, joy and peace for whenever anyone needs to make sense out of the senseless. It makes a nice gift too.
