15 Good Night Prayers Before Getting in Bed and Sleeping

After a long day, reciting one of these great good night prayers before getting in bed and sleeping will bring you peace in the evening.

Prayer #1

Dear Lord,

lease help me trust You and empower me through Your Spirit to stop my emotions from bossing me around. I want to quit worrying about what might happen and focus on what has already happened by remembering and praising You for Your faithfulness in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prayer #2

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Prayer #3

Father, we thank thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.
Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, in work or play,
To grow more loving every day.

Prayer #4

Dear God, we thank you tonight for the good day and for the special way you take care of us all the time. Thank you for the fun times outside and the quiet times inside, and for helping us learn new things every day.

Thank you for creating us special, exactly the way you wanted. Thank you for protecting us throughout the day. Forgive us for the wrong things we do. Thank you for loving us even when we disobey or try to do things our way. Help us to always choose your way, God, because it’s always best. We pray for all the people who don’t know you, and that they will come to understand your love for them, too.

Bless our family and thank you for good times together and apart. Bless our friends and those we love, including our grandparents, our aunts and uncles and cousins. Thank you for our home and a place to sleep and good food to eat. Help us rest well, give us peaceful dreams, and send your angels around our home to protect us throughout the night. Teach us to trust you and to love you more and more. You are good; you are great; and you are faithful, God. And we love you. Good night. In Jesus’s precious name, Amen.

Prayer #5

Dear Father, I admit that I often forget that you are with me. I often forget what you’re like. Would you please forgive me for that? I need to get to know you better. I need to get to know your Word and your promises better. Help me to put you first in every area of my life. Help me to live one day at a time. Help me to not worry about tomorrow but instead focus on what you’re doing in my life right now. I want to trust in your promise to take care of every one of my needs — financial, relational, physical, social, spiritual, and emotional. Help me to trust you more and worry less. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Prayer #6

For God’s not given me a spirit of fear,
But a spirit of love,
and of power, and a sound mind,
To live each day and glorify his name.

Prayer #7

Father,

Thank you for today, for all the ways in which I have known you…

For the sunrise and the birdsong
For the music I’ve heard, and the things I’ve enjoyed
For the meals, and for the cosy home I live in
For my close family and for my special friends
Most of all, thank you for being beside me through each moment.

May I dream good dreams and arise again tomorrow to thank you once more.

Amen.

Prayer #8

I am so tired Father.
Help me to sleep now, restore my energy,
Cover my feelings and watch over my mind.
I rest in you tonight.

Prayer #10

Lord,

You bless us as we rest
Restore us as we sleep
You care for us as we drift off
And make our dreaming sweet

You are the safest place
You are the God of Grace
Forgiven, loved and held by you
Is each small seed of faith

You know our thoughts and feelings
You see our deep desires
You understand our weariness
And catch each tear we cry

You walk beside us every day
You are a constant friend
You stay with us all through the night
On you we can depend

Prayer #11

Father, thank you that you care for me. In this moment, I recall all the times when you have been faithful to me, for you are a rock beneath my feet and a secure fortress around me. Come guard my heart, protect my mind and cover my whole being with your love. I place all my trust in you.

Amen.

Prayer #12

Whatever’s pressing on our minds and hearts tonight, may God give us the strength to lay it down…again. All our wrestling, and the worries and stress we carry, are useless. We can trust that he’ll take care of whatever concerns us. He knows the best way; his timing is perfect. And he is able. He’s the storm-calmer, the peace-giver, the burden-lifter, the hope-bringer. Nothing is too difficult for him. He truly is our peace.

Use this prayer as an outline for your own prayer to God for the end of each day, and let him fill you with his peace and love.

Prayer #13

Dear God,

Thank you for the blessing of this day and your goodness in it, we’re grateful for the gift of life. Thank you for all that you’ve allowed into our lives these past hours, the good along with the hard things, which have reminded us how much we need you and rely on your presence filling us every single day. Thank you for your great love and care. Thank you for your mercy and grace. Thank you that you are always with us and will never leave us.

We ask for your huge peace to surround us tonight, all of us who feel restless and worried right now, those who have been carrying big burdens and shouldering stress. Help us to lay it down before you, again, even though we’re struggling to really let go. Remind us that you can carry it so much better than we ever could. May your power and your rest fill us fresh. May the presence of your Spirit breathe hope deep into our souls, even as we sleep.

Prayer #14

We ask for your hand to cover us and keep us distanced from the evil intent of the enemy; that you’d be a barrier to surround us, and we’d be safe in your hands. We pray for your healing and huge grace to encircle us in every need, and for your comfort to cover us when we feel deep loss. We ask for your angels of protection to surround our families through the night.

Help us to be alert to your spirit, that our hearts would be eager to hear your voice as we awaken. We pray you’d make us strong and courageous for the road ahead. Help us to feel refreshed deep down in our souls, and to be faithful to walk in the wisdom of your word. Give us a desire for more of your presence. Help us to remember to rely fully on you, fixing our eyes on Jesus. We ask for your words of truth and power to strengthen us in our inner being.

Thank you for your goodness, thank you that you know the way we take and that you have a plan.

We love you Lord, we need you, and we thank you we can rest in your perfect care.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen.

Prayer #15

O Lord our God, King of the Universe.
Let the wings of sleep fall upon my eyes,
and upon my eyelids.
O Blessed One,
Let me lie down in peace,
and rise in peace.
Into Your hand I entrust my spirit.
