Saturday of Lent 5

All Praise to Thee, My God, This Night – Lutheran Service Book #883
Psalm 91; Psalm 92:1-2; Psalm 4:8

When in the night I sleepless lie,
My soul with heav’nly thoughts supply;
Let no ill dreams disturb my rest
No pow’rs of darkness me molest.

The experience we have of sleep is worth exploring more, This prayer is exceedingly wise.  There are dreams that can disturb rest.  Praying against them is worth doing.

Be our light in the darkness, O Lord, and in Your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of Your only Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.[1]
