Catholic Prayer: A Child's Gospel Night Prayer

Description:

In honor of the four evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, this prayer can be said, and also used in the family setting before bedtime.

Prayer:

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Bless the bed that I lie on. Before I lay me down to sleep, I give my soul to Christ to keep. Four corners to my bed, Four angels there aspread, Two to foot and two to head, And four to carry me when I'm dead. I go by sea, I go by land; The Lord made me with His right hand.
