    My Grandmother taught me this prayer when I was a child. My Grandmother was born in 1918-89 I was born in 1963. Thou hast clothed me, warmed and fed me; listen to my evening prayer. 3. Let my debts be all forgiven; This is the only thing different about the prayer I learned as a child. (Thou has clothed, Warmth and fed me.) and (Let my sins be all forgiven) I love this prayer and now it has more meaning. It's always been special to me.
