Pagan Bedtime Blessings?

I always use the blessing
"Earth and Water
Fire and Air
Watch over Me
When Mom's not there."

As a bedtime blessing over my son. I wonder if anyone else has one they use? I'd like a little variety... :o)

  • Now I lay me down to rest
    I pray that all the world be blessed
    Lady Moon and Sister Star watch over me from afar
    Mother Earth is always there
    And keeps me safe within her care
    The Lord of Dreams will dance and sing
    And happy dreams to me will bring
    And when I wake to greet the day
    Brother Sun will light my way.

  • Bedtime Blessing

    As I close my weary eyes I look to you up in the skies
    God and Goddess bless me tonite, so I may wake with dawn so bright

    Here's another

    "The Moon illuminates
    the Earth with it's
    wondrous silver rays;
    Illuminate me through
    the nights and through
    the sun-lit days.
    Blessed be."

  • The Childs Rede
    ———— —
    Oh Gracious Goddess, Mother Earth,
    I call to Thee with love and mirth,
    Oh Horn-ed Hunter of the night,
    I pray to Thee; show me thy light
    As my heart grows strong
    Teach me right from wrong,
    Keep me safe
    Keep me warm
    So none will I harm,
    So I will be
    One with thee
    As my will
    So mote it be!

  • Goddess Prayers

    1. Mother of all things, watch over me tonight,
    Hold me in your arms, until the morning light.

    2. Blessed be the mother goddess, by all her many names.
    May she bless my family and friends.
    May she bless the animals of the world,
    And all people everywhere.

    3. Diana, goddess of the moon,
    Shining in the sky above,
    Bathe me in your magical light,
    And protect me with your love.

  • God Prayers

    1. The horned god runs in the night,
    And hunts among the stars,
    May he watch over and keep us safe,
    No matter where we are.

    2. Lord of night, welcome me as I sleep.
    Guide me in the darkness,
    And protect me as I dream.

  • Earth-Focused Prayers

    The earth is big and fat and round,
    I love the sky, the sea and the ground,
    I love the birds and dogs and sheep,
    And all the animals that fall asleep,
    I love the flowers and rocks and trees,
    I love the earth, and it loves me.

    Fantasy-Focused Prayers

    Now I lay down in my bed,
    And pull the covers up to my head.
    I'll dream of dragons and fairies bright,
    And pixies and wizards and elves tonight.
    I'll dream of some sort of magical place, and
    Wake in the morning with a smile on my face.
