“Matthew 6:6 Enter into Your closet, and when You have shut Your door, pray to Your Father which is in secret; and Your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward You openly.”

You, O God, make the going out-of the evening, as well as of the morning, to rejoice; Psalm 65:8(KJV) for by them You call me from work and my labor Psalm 104:23(KJV) and bid me to rest a while. Mark 6:31(KJV) Now let my soul return to You and rest in You, because You have dealt bountifully with me; Psalm 116:7(KJV) so shall my sleep be sweet to me. Jeremiah 31:26(KJV)

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads me with his benefits, Psalm 68:19(KJV) who has this day preserved my going out and coming in; Psalm 121:8(KJV) and now I have received from You my daily bread, I pray, Father, forgive me my trespasses. Matthew 6:11-12(KJV)

I will lay down and sleep; for You Lord, make me to dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8(KJV) Make a hedge of protection about me and about my house and about all that I have around me. Job 1:10(KJV) Let the angels of God encamp around me, to deliver me; Psalm 34:7(KJV) that I may lie down, and nothing or no one may make me afraid. Job 11:19(KJV)

Into Your hands I commit my spirit, Psalm 31:5(KJV) that in slumbering upon the bed, my ears may be opened and instructions sealed; Job 33:15-16(KJV) and let the Lord give me counsel; and let Your Spirit instruct me in the night season. Psalm 16:7(KJV) Visit me in the night and try me Psalm 17:3(KJV) and enable me to commune with my own heart upon my bed. Psalm 4:4(KJV)

Give me remembrance of You upon my bed, as I desire to meditate upon You in the night watches, Psalm 63:6(KJV) together with the saints that are joyful in glory, and that sing aloud upon their beds. Psalm 149:5(KJV)
