Prayer For A Good Night's Sleep
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.
Thank you for holding me together today. I needed you, and you were there for me. Thank you for every bit of love, mercy, and grace that was shown to me though I did not deserve it. Thank you for your faithfulness even in my suffering. To you alone be the glory.
Father, as the shadows of evening draw across the night sky, I thank You that I am part of Your heavenly family and that throughout the world there is always someone that is lifting up their hands and heart to praise and worship You.
Lord, tonight I give thanks for my brothers and sisters worldwide and lift each one up, praying that You will be all that each one needs. And Lord, as I settle down for the night and lift my hands and heart to You, I pray that You would give me and all Your children the rest and refreshment that we need in the hours of darkness so that we may be ready and prepared mentally and spiritually to face the rigours of the day.
Watch over those that are sleeping, renew those that are weary, refresh those that are tired, heal those that are sick, feed those that are hungry, pity those that are affected and protect those that are in danger. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour,
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for being with me today and for the fun and food and happy time I have had today. Thank You for loving me and for caring for me, and thank You for my family and friends.
Please continue to take care of me and be with me as I go to sleep, and bless all my friends and family. Look after us throughout the night and be by my side when I wake up, I pray.
I am sorry for the things I have done wrong today and ask You to forgive me. Thank You, that You never stop loving me even when I am naughty. Help me to be good. Help me to listen to my parents and obey them, and help me to listen to the wisdom of other grown-ups too.
Thank You, Jesus, for dying for me on the cross to take the punishment that I deserve for my sins and thank You for rising again so that I can go to heaven to be with You forever. Thank You Jesus,
Heavenly Father, You know that I suffer with an ongoing sleep disorder and it does not seem to be improving at all. I come to You humbly, to ask that You would look down in pity on my situation and grant me the healing and strength I need to get a good night's sleep.
Lord, I find myself going to bed and worrying that I will not get to sleep and it turns into a vicious circle and so I ask that You would quiet my mind, still my heart and comfort my soul.
Father, I do not know what to do but You have said that we are to cast all our troubles and problems on You and so tonight, I cast all my cares upon You and pray that You would do a work in me to enable me to overcome this unpleasant sleep disorder, and I will give You all the praise and glory. In Jesus' name I pray,
Dear Lord, I am finding it so difficult to sleep. My mind will not be quieted and I seem to spend the whole night thinking and tossing and turning as the worries of life are churning in my heart.
I come to You as my heavenly Shepherd, because I am one of Your sheep, one of Your little lambs. I come to you today because You have promised to make me lie down in green pastures and to lead me beside still waters. You have promised to restore my soul. Lord, as my good Shepherd I pray that You will guide me into calmer pastures. I really need those green pastures right now. Please help me lie down in peace and to rest in Your arms of love, for You alone, O Lord, will help me to sleep in safety,
Heavenly Father, I pray that as I go to bed tonight that You would give me a peaceful nights sleep and help me to wake refreshed, ready and willing to do Your will.
Thank You, that You have given us this blessed time when our bodies and souls have an opportunity to be renewed, revived and revitalised. Keep me throughout the night-time hours under Your protection, and may the angel of Your presence encamp around me tonight, for I love and trust You to keep me from all evil.
Grant me Your perfect peace in my heart, and give me such a knowledge of Your closeness Lord, that I may rest securely, sleep soundly and sense that blessed assurance of Your love and grace surrounding me. This I ask in Jesus' name,
Dear Lord, You were the one that made the moon and the stars to shine by night and gave us the beautiful hours of the night in which to replenish our strength, repair our bodies and refresh our souls.
Help me I pray, to take advantage of this God-given time, when the weariness of the day gives way to a peaceful night's sleep and the general renewal of our of minds.
Help me I pray, to get to bed at a wise time and not to retire to bed too late. Help me to use this time to full advantage and not to sit up into the small hours of the morning, but gain full benefit of a complete nights rest, so that I may wake refreshed and get up early, to Your praise and glory.
Help me I pray to get to bed at a good time. This I ask in Jesus' name,
