Bedtime Prayers: Lullabies and Peaceful Worship (2001)
Bedtime Prayers: Lullabies and Peaceful Worship is the fourteenth studio and children's music album by Christian singer -songwriter Twila Paris, released on March 27, 2001 by Sparrow Records.
Bedtime Prayers consists of original lullabies written by Paris, with the exception of William O. Cushing's hymn "Jewels." The album was perfectly timed because Paris and her husband Jack Wright were expecting their first child. A month after the album's release, Paris gave birth to their first born son named Jack Paris Wright. It was a name Paris had picked out for 15 years. The album is produced by John Hartley of the U.K. Christian music duo Phil and John with additional production by Derald Daughterty, lead singer of the alternative Christian rock band The Choir.
Bedtime Prayers topped the Billboard Top Kid Albums chart and in 2002, Paris won a Dove Award for Children's Music Album of the Year at the 33rd GMA Dove Awards. Paris has also released a companion book called Bedtime Prayers and Lullabies published by Harvest House Publishers. Accompanied with illustration paintings by Kathryn Andrews Fincher, the book gives new parents simple prayers and soothing lullabies to newborn babies and toddlers.
