Prayer Before Bed

Heavenly Father,

I come before You with a grateful heart, expressing my gratitude for the blessings and provision You have bestowed upon me throughout this day. I humbly ask for Your forgiveness for any sins I may have committed and for the strength to resist temptation and choose righteousness.

Lord, I place my trust in You and implore You to watch over me as I sleep. Please protect me and those I love from harm and grant us peaceful rest.

I pray for wisdom and guidance in the decisions I will make tomorrow. I implore You for strength and courage to face any challenges that may come my way. I pray for the ability to be a beacon of light in the world, sharing Your love and truth with those around me.

I pray for all those who are suffering, imploring You to bring them comfort and healing. I pray for Your protection and provision for those in need.

I give You thanks for the gift of salvation through Your Son Jesus Christ and I pray that Your presence would be felt in all the days of my life.

This is my prayer in Jesus’ name, Amen.
