A Childs Prayer

Almighty and most Merciful God

Who, when little children born again of water

depart this mortal life, doest forthwith,

without any desert of other, bestow upon

them life everlasting, as we believe thou hast

done to this little child, grant we beseech thee,

that through the intercession of the Blessed

Virgin Mary and of all thy saints. We may

serve thee here with pure minds and be

forever united to the blessed little ones in paradise.

Through Christ our Lord.

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my soul to keep...

If I should die before I wake....

I pray the Lord my soul to take-

May God bless all those I love.
