It is bedtime again, and we must pray.
So, we will start by giving thanks to the Lord for all he has done for us.
He has kept us safe until now, so we must return with thanks.
We will pray for our friends (boyfriends or girlfriends) and loved ones.
We will ask God for protection as we sleep.
That’s not all.
We must also pray for our family members, including your parents and your children.
