Giving thanks to the LORD when retiring for the day
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. - Psalm 4:8
WHEN GOING TO BED for the day, it is good to give thanks to the LORD who sustained you and gave you another day of life. Here are a sequence of blessings and Scripture verses traditionally recited before falling to sleep:
Creator of Evening Twilight...
Blessed are You, O LORD, our God, King of the universe, who created day and night. You roll away the light from before the darkness, and the darkness from before the light. Blessed are You LORD, who creates the evening twilight.
