The prayer of sleep


Do we think of our sleep as a form of prayer?

Some time ago I would fall asleep envisioning myself combing Jesus’ long hair as an act of love. Although that no longer happens, for whatever reason, I can still offer my sleep as a form of prayer. To go to sleep is to be vulnerable. I trust my guardian angel to be vigilant and watch over me as I sleep. I also trust the Lord ‘my soul to keep’ as the prayer says.

What or who do you think of as you go to sleep?
