Prayer before retiring at night

Before we go to sleep we read the Shema one last time. We also read prayers and psalms that express our desire to clean up our day from all possible missteps, recover from all our mistakes and set the stage for another successful day. The following is the opening paragraph, which has a strong 10th step element, essentially a recap of steps 4-7:

Master of the universe! I hereby forgive anyone who has angered or vexed me, or sinned against me, either physically or financially, against my honor or anything else that is mine, whether accidentally or intentionally, inadvertently or deliberately, by speech or by deed, in this incarnation or in any other – any Israelite; may no man be punished on my account.

May it be Your will, L-rd my G‑d and G‑d of my fathers, that I shall sin no more nor repeat my sins, neither shall I again anger You nor do what is wrong in Your eyes.

The sins I have committed, erase in Your abounding mercies, but not through suffering or severe illnesses.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable before You, L-rd, my Strength and my Redeemer.
