Prayer before sleep

Take courage , offer him your pains incessantly, and pray to Him for strength to endure them. Above all, get a habit of entertaining yourself often with God, and forget Him the least you can. Adore Him in your infirmities, offer yourself to Him from time to time, and in the height of your sufferings beseech Him humbly and affectionately (as a child his father) to make you comfortable to His holy will. I will endeavor to assist you with my poor prayers. He is the Father of the afflicted, always ready to help us. He loves us infinitely more than we imagine. Love Him, therefore , and see no consolation elsewhere. I hope will soon receive it.
