Jesus bedtime prayer in the chosen

Jesus’ bedtime prayer from the book of Matthew is one of the most famous prayers in all of Christianity. It’s often used as a model for how to pray, or at least how to think about what you’re saying when you pray.

The prayer is basically a list of everything Jesus asks God for. The first thing he asks for is that God would be with him always, which is kind of an obvious request but also really important because it means that Jesus wants God to be with him through everything—not just in church or during times when they’re praying together.

The second thing Jesus asks for is that God will help him do his Father’s will and make his Father proud of him. This shows us that Jesus knows that he needs help doing things right and making sure he does them according to God’s plan.

The third thing Jesus asks for is forgiveness for his sins, which shows us that even though he’s perfect, he still feels guilt about stuff he’s done wrong (which makes sense since we all make mistakes). He doesn’t want any punishment from God because he thinks it’ll hurt too much—he just wants to be forgiven so he can move on from whatever mistake he made without feeling guilty anymore

We can be certain that, like most observing Jews, Jesus prayed the Shema in the morning and in the evening. The Torah prescribes that one should recite the Shema “when you lie down and when you rise up” (Deuteronomy 6:7, 11:9). The traditional Shema comes from Deuteronomy 6:4-9, and it starts with “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is One.” Shema is Hebrew for “Hear.” People have added other prayers before or after the Shema, such as in this Bedtime Shema, found in the Talmud. The series The Chosen has a few scenes showing Jesus praying this prayer as he goes to sleep. I think it is beautiful.

“Jesus said to his disciples, ‘When you pray, say: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.’ “

-Matthew 6:9-15 (NIV)

We hope you’re enjoying your time with the Chosen.

We’d like to take a moment to introduce you to Jesus’ bedtime prayer. It’s a beautiful example of how Jesus loved his father, and how he wished for all of us to love our families and friends as well. He was a great example of how to be kind, thoughtful, and loving—and we hope you’ll take his words to heart as you read through this prayer and look for ways that you can put them into practice in your daily life!
