A Good Night Prayer

Heavenly Father,

As I lay down to sleep tonight, I offer You my praises and gratitude for the blessings You have bestowed upon me today. I thank You for Your love, grace, and mercy. I am grateful for Your protection and guidance throughout the day.

I pray that You would be with me as I rest tonight. I ask that You surround me with Your peace and comfort as I sleep. I pray that my mind and heart will remain focused on You and that Your love would fill my dreams.

I also lift up my loved ones in prayer tonight, especially those who are going through difficult times. I ask that You would give them strength, hope, and comfort as they rest.

Lastly, I pray for those who do not yet know You. I ask that You would reveal Yourself to them in a powerful way, that they may come to know Your love and salvation.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
