A Bedtime Prayer in November

O my God,

As the evening falls, I come to you in prayer.

I thank you for being with me in every

moment of this day,

guiding me and protecting me,

keeping me from harm.

On this November night,

I bring before you in prayer

all those dear to me who have died.


Remember them God

in your loving kindness.

May they now rest in your eternal peace.

May all of us who still miss them

and grieve for them

find comfort in our belief

that we will one day see them again

in the kingdom of heaven.


I remember in my prayer this night

all those who have died

and who have no one to pray for them.

For these and for our loved ones I pray:

Eternal rest grant unto them,

O Lord, let perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.
