Wake Me Up

We need passion in our faith! Instead of praying, 'If I should die before I wake', we should pray, 'Lord wake me up before I die!'

    Maybe this is a little off of the point being made but we used to teach our children the Now I lay me down to sleep prayer and it went "if I should die before I wake" One of my children asked why are we praying about dying before I wake up in the morning. I want to be forgiven and wake up tomorrow and try again. So now we pray, " Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep, Watch and Guard me through the night, until the early light.
