Calm My Mind Prayer
Prince of Peace, thank you that I am never alone, your presence calms the troubled sea of my life and speaks peace to my soul. The Bible says that I can lay down and sleep because you sustain me.

Watch Over Me Prayer
Merciful God, thank you that there is nowhere I can go that is beyond your presence. Your word says that you will not let me fall because you never sleep or slumber.

Spiritual Protection Prayer
Name above all Names, thank you that you are all-powerful, you can do anything you desire. You are the Lord of hosts, the commander of heavens armies. At your name, demons tremble and flee. May I sleep under the powerful protection of your name tonight and every night. Hear my prayer and fight for me, Lord.

Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Supernatural Peace Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, thank you that you are the same yesterday, today, and forever. You have said that your peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Give me your supernatural peace as I sleep tonight. Surround me with your almighty presence. You slept in the middle of a storm because you knew that the storm would be still with one word from you.

I pray for your protection against the enemy, his servants, their works and effects. Fill my mind with thoughts of you and your good creation as I sleep tonight. Remind me that neither death or life, angels or rulers, things present or future, height or depth, or anything else in all creation, will be able to separate me from your love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Peace and Rest Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you that you possess infinite riches of wisdom, goodness and power.
