Dear Heavenly Father,
As I lay down to rest tonight, I give You all the praise and honor for the blessings of this day. I am grateful for Your grace and mercy that You extend to me each and every day. I humbly ask that You watch over me and protect me as I sleep. Keep me safe from harm and danger, and surround me with Your loving presence.
I also ask that You watch over my loved ones, and keep them safe as well. Grant them peace and rest, and let Your love fill their hearts. I pray for all those who are struggling and in need tonight, and ask that You would provide for them and bring them comfort.
I confess my sins to You and ask for Your forgiveness. I ask that You would help me to grow in my faith and to live a life that is pleasing to You. I pray for Your guidance and wisdom as I navigate the challenges of life.
I give You thanks, Lord, for all that You have done for me. I trust in Your goodness and love, and I know that You are always with me. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
