I am free from all struggle and strife.
I am free from anxiety and apprehension.
I am free from all strain and tension.
I abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I am able to see what I should do. I am able to do what I see should be done.
I have clear vision because I desire to do only that which is right and just.
I shall not entangle myself, I shall be shown the way in which I should walk, moment by moment.
Whatever comes into my mortal experience, for me there is no loss; there can be only gain.
Because of what I am in being, nothing pertaining to my growth in self-recognition can bring me real harm.
I see and feel that I am complete and whole and that I live and move and have this being, in God, my Cause.
I am safe and secure every moment.
I am cradled in the eternal arms, I rest upon the Infinite bosom.
I am sinking into that sleep which is peace and rest, refreshment and strengthening.
It is mine as a child-soul that is nurtured from the divine; and I have no fear of aught that can befall me.
There is One that neither slumbers nor sleeps, and I am guarded and protected.
I give myself up to quiet slumber. I sleep with the sleeping world, with the fields and the flowers, with the creatures small and great.
For we are one Brotherhood, and I hear the voice of our Father in the murmur of the stream, the gentle rustle of the night-wind, the breath of the flowers.
It says to me, “Best my child. All things rest. Take your rest. I am here. I will never leave nor forsake you."
I let go all effort to do or to be.
I sink back into these waiting arms.
I feel them close tenderly about me.
I am in the "green pastures," beside the "still waters." I am with the good Shepherd of the sheep.
I am asleep, for “He giveth His beloved, sleep."
