A delightful little nightstand companion to make prayer a natural part of every day.

Greet the day with a celebration of sunrise—and close it with deep appreciation for life's daily gifts and lessons. Here in one charming volume — compiled by the author of the popular gift book Graces — you'll find an uplifting collection of readings, prayers, and poems arranged in specific sections to make the joys of prayer a simple, natural part of each day. Special prayers bring motivation to Morning, and lullabies and musing help us focus on the peace of Nightfall. Other readings offer Inspiration or Comfort, or guide us gently through private Reflections. Bedside Prayers is a lovely little gift book for anyone who would like to make the enjoyment of daily prayer as constant as the rising and setting of the sun.

Chapter One


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.

Jo-Anne Rowley

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.

Henry Van Dyke
