A Prayer At Close of Day: After Being Out of the Trailer for 2 Weeks

Dear Lord,
Now, as I muster up the courage, to lay me down to sleep,
To close my eyes and ignore the movements I think I see on the floor,
To close my ears from the teeny squeaky, rustling sounds I think I hear,
To close my mouth, for I am a mouth breather,
For who knows what could crawl up onto my bed tonight.
You saw the little mouse that got the trap snap in our floor vent,
And you were there when the other mouse somehow dropped dead
On the Lego Village on our living room floor.
And you know when we shut off our bodies to the wilds of this trailer,
What skulks around in the darkness as we sleep.
Grant us peace. Give us courage.
And please don’t let any vermin poop on my pillow, or in my hand, or in my mouth tonight.
For I am trying my best not to be truly afraid.
In Your Name,
Amen.
