Prayer at Night Before Going to Bed

Heavenly Father,

I come before You tonight with a grateful heart. Thank You for the blessings of this day and for the gift of life. I ask for Your forgiveness for any sins I have committed and for Your protection as I lay down to rest.

I trust in Your love and Your plan for my life. I thank You for Your grace and mercy. I pray for those I love, for my family and friends, and for all those in need. I ask that You would watch over them and keep them safe.

I humbly pray for Your guidance and wisdom in all that I do. I pray for peace in my heart and in the world. I trust in Your goodness and Your faithfulness, and I rest in Your love.

Thank You for being my rock and my salvation. I pray this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
