A Goodnight Prayer

Heavenly Father,

I come to You tonight with a grateful heart. I thank You for Your love and grace that surrounds me each day. I thank You for the blessings You have bestowed upon me and for the struggles You have helped me overcome.

I ask that You would watch over me as I sleep and protect me from harm. I pray that You would give me peaceful dreams and that Your presence would be with me throughout the night.

I also lift up those who are in need of Your comfort and healing tonight. I ask that You would bring peace to their hearts and minds and that they would feel Your loving embrace.

I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness and know that You are always with me. I give You all the honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
