15 Bedtime Prayers for Adults

His Mercies Are New Every Morning

 The Lord’s Prayer

Many of us have been taught to say The Lord’s Prayer as a kid, and it’s a powerful way to express our love and gratitude for God. As you pray these words, it can be helpful to visualize all of those you are thankful for in your life. Try closing your eyes as you recite The Lord’s Prayer; visualizing everything going on around you can help keep other stressful thoughts at bay while also helping you focus on what matters most. This prayer is a great one to repeat before bed because it helps you reflect on your day—and remember that no matter how hard things may seem right now, there is always someone bigger than you who loves and cares about you.
The Lord’s Prayer:
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil… Amen! (Matthew 6:9-13)

Prayer for Safety 

Heavenly Father, I want to thank you for the many blessings that you have given me today. Thank you for your love and protection. Thank you for watching over my family and me throughout the day. Lord, I ask you to watch over us throughout the night too. Keep us safe from any evil that the enemy has planned against us this night. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.

 

Prayer for True Rest 

O Lord, I am grateful that you have enabled me to reach this hour of rest. It has been a very challenging day, but you have seen me through it. I am weary and tired right now.

As I go to bed to rest, I ask you, God, to renew me emotionally, physically, and spiritually. May I wake up tomorrow refreshed and ready to face the day. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

 

Protection Prayer

Father, there are so many things I have done or said today that are contrary to your will, forgive me. If  I have opened any door for the enemy in my life because of sin, Lord, shut them. Cleanse me with the blood of your dear Son and help me to walk in your ways. Jesus, protect me from the terror by night and the pestilence that walks in darkness. I go to sleep knowing that no evil shall befall us this night nor shall any plague come near my dwelling. Thank you for answering my prayers, Amen.

 

Prayer of Gratitude

Anxiety Prayer

O Lord, I have been anxious the whole day, and to be honest, my heart is still troubled. Lord, I do not want to go to bed feeling this way.

If you’re having trouble sleeping at night, give yourself some time to reflect on your life and all that God has given you during your day. Allow his presence within you to surround you with love and peace as you drift off into sleep.
