    I don't know without some context, but it sounds to me as if it's a reference to the childish prayer (said at bed-time) 'Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.' I've never met it as an idiom, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was used to mean 'an expression of child-like/na´ve/unthinking trust'.
