A prayer before bed is a great way to thank God for the good things that happened in the day and to pray for hope for the next day. Here are some Christian prayers for adults to say before bed.
Prayer of Thanks
Lord, I want to thank you for my family and friends this evening. I am thankful for all the doors you are opening and closing in my life. Thank you for how far you have brought me. It was not through my own strength or power, but through your Spirit. Lord, as I go to sleep tonight, I know that you are the only one who keeps me safe. Thank you for putting your angels in charge of me. When I go to bed, I know they are keeping an eye on me. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen, thank you for your love that does not change.
Hope for the Future Prayer
Lord, I go to sleep with hope for tomorrow because you, Lord, are the only one who keeps me alive. Even though life is hard, I choose to believe in you and trust you. I give you everything I am tonight, and I choose to sleep in your warm embrace, knowing that you are always there to help me when I need it. I believe and pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
A Prayer for True Rest
O Lord, I am thankful that you have helped me get to this moment of rest. It is been a hard day, but you have helped me get through it. I am tired and worn out right now. I am worried about a lot of things. Lord, help me really rest tonight in you. Give me your peace and set me free from all these worries. As I go to bed to get some rest, I ask God to refresh me on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. May I get a good night’s sleep and feel ready to face the day when I wake up. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
A Prayer for Safety
Father, I have done and said so many things today that are against your will. Please forgive me. If my sins have opened any doors for the enemy, please close them, Lord. Help me follow your ways by washing me with the blood of your beloved Son. Jesus, keep me safe from the fear that comes at night and the sickness that moves around in the dark. When I go to sleep, I know that nothing bad will happen to us this night and that no plague will come near my house. Amen. Thank you for hearing my prayers.
Lord, give my family and me a good night’s sleep tonight. We hope to wake up tomorrow feeling refreshed and ready to go. Bless our house and the area around it, and keep us safe. Cover us with your wings of love tonight, and help us smile with joy when we wake up tomorrow. In the name of Jesus, I pray, “Amen,” that all the glory comes back to you, Father.
O Lord, I have been worried all day, and to be honest, I still feel worried. Lord, I do not want to feel like this when I go to bed. Your word says we should not worry, but we should tell you what we need through prayer and supplication. I put everything that worries me at your feet and choose to rest tonight in your love. Cover me with your loving arms the whole night long and let me sleep. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
Dear Father, I want to ask for your forgiveness tonight. So many of the things I did today make me feel bad about myself. Please forgive me, Lord. Teach me how to follow you, and hide your word in my heart, so that when I wake up tomorrow, I will not sin against you. Deal with my heart tonight and help me be a light in a world full of darkness. In the name of Jesus, I pray, “Take away my guilt and help me sleep knowing I have been forgiven and made whole again.”
Prayer for Peace
Dear God, as I go to bed, I ask you to make me feel at peace. My day has been very stressful and has made me antsy. Lord, I do not know what will happen to me tomorrow, but I trust you with everything. I will not worry about anything because I know you will take care of everything while I sleep. May the peace that goes beyond understanding fill my heart and protect it from all the troubles of the night. I believe and pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Jesus, I am glad you showed me today how much you love me. You have shown me what love is through your friends, family, and coworkers. I am so thankful, Lord. I am sorry that I have been too whiny. May the things I think about tonight make you happy. God, please send your army of angels to watch over us while we sleep tonight. In the name of Jesus, I pray, “Destroy any plans the devil has against us tonight and let us sleep without fear.”
Prayer for Safety
God in the sky, I want to thank you for all of the good things you have done for me today. We are grateful for your love and care. Thank you for keeping an eye on me and my family all day. Lord, I also ask you to keep an eye on us all night. Keep us safe from anything bad that the enemy might try to do to us tonight. I believe and pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
A Prayer for a Loved One
Dear God, I want to say thanks for the people I love. Thank you for keeping an eye on them all day. Send your angels to watch over them as we go to sleep. Protect them from all kinds of bad things. Let them have a peaceful night tonight. Bless them and look out for them. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
People from all over the world pray
O Lord, you are my God, and this evening I want to worship you. Father, you have done many good things. Lord, I want to say thank you. Heavenly Father, I give people from all over the world to your good care. Some of them are going to bed tonight hungry, some are sick, and some are worried. Lord, keep an eye on them and give them comfort. Father, meet them where they are and let them sleep, because you let the people you love sleep. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.We highly recommend this Catholic book below that will help your faith. It addresses numerous questions and can be given to friends and family.
