Short Night Prayers

Barbara Scott (sleeping ice skater), Switzerland, 1948

O my God, I thank Thee for all Thy gifts during this day. Preserve and bless me also during this night. I offer to Thee my rest, and by every breath I wish to adore and love Thee as the saints do in heaven.
Examine your conscience; make an act of contrition, and add three Hail Marys to the Blessed Virgin to remain pure.

New York, 1885
