Bedtime prayers for babies

Teaching your child the right bedtime prayers before bedtime will instill a habit that will last a lifetime. Talking to the Lord before sleep is an important way for your child to build a relationship with the Lord. Here is a look at some great bedtime prayers for babies.

Prayers #1

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Prayer #2

Now the light has gone away;
Savior, listen while I pray.
Asking Thee to watch and keep
And to send me quiet sleep.

Jesus, Savior, wash away
All that has been wrong to-day;
Help me every day to be
Good and gentle, more like Thee.

Let my near and dear ones be
Always near and dear to Thee.
O bring me and all I love
To Thy happy home above.

Prayer #3

The day is done;
O God the Son,
Look down upon
Thy little one!

O Light of Light,
Keep me this night,
And shed round me
Thy presence bright.

I need not fear
If Thou art near;
Thou art my Savior
Kind and dear.

Prayer #4

Forgive, O Lord, for Thy dear Son
The ill that I this day have done.
That with the world, myself, and Thee
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be.

Prayer #5

Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me:
Bless Thy little child to-night;
Through the darkness be Thou near me,
Keep me safe till morning light.

All this day Thy hand has led me,
And I thank Thee for Thy care;
Thou hast warmed me, clothed me, fed me;
Listen to my evening prayer.

May my sins be all forgiven;
Bless the friends I love so well;
Take me, Lord, at last to heaven.
Happy there with Thee to dwell

Prayer #6

Our Father, Who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.

Prayer #7

Lord, I have passed another day
And come to thank Thee for Thy care.
Forgive my faults in work or play
And listen to my evening prayer.
Thy favor gives me daily bread
And friends, who all my wants supply:
And safely now I rest my head,
Preserved and guarded by Thine eye.

Prayer #8

Father, we thank thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.

Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, in work or play,
To grow more loving every day.

Prayer #9

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head.
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay,
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes;
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,
And fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there.

Prayer #10

Lord, I have passed another day
And come to thank Thee for Thy care.
Forgive my faults in work or play
And listen to my evening prayer.
Thy favor gives me daily bread
And friends, who all my wants supply:
And safely now I rest my head,
Preserved and guarded by Thine eye.

Prayer #11

The day is done;
O God the Son,
Look down upon
Thy little one!

O Light of Light,
Keep me this night,
And shed round me
Thy presence bright.

I need not fear
If Thou art near;
Thou art my Savior
Kind and dear.

Prayer #12

Father, we thank thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.

Help us to do the things we should,
To be to others kind and good;
In all we do, in work or play,
To grow more loving every day.

Here is a great look at a toddler’s bedtime prayer that was captured on a baby monitor. When a daughter was told to go to bed one night, her parents were able to capture this delightful prayer shared by her from her bed.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
Please help me learn my world to keep.
To guard the air and shies of blue,
The oceans, lakes and rivers too.
Save the mighty forest lands,
The plains, the shores, the desert sands.
Protect all creatures, wild and free,
In air, on land, and in the sea.

Day is done, it’s time for bed
Goddess bless my sleepy head.
In the morning, when the sun does rise
God will bless my open eyes.
Day is done, it’s time for bed
Goddess bless my sleepy head.
In the morning, soft or bright
God will bless my heart with light.

As I lay snuggled in my bed,
Pillow tucked beneath my head,
Maiden, bring me joyful dreams.
Mother, bring me peace, serene.
Wisest Crone, watch over me,
Until the light of dawn I see.
Brightest Blessings!!!

From the east unto the West
The Sun has traveled and has blessed us
I give thanks to this day.
For every Rock and every Tree
from the Desert to the Sea
The Moon will glow to let us know
That blessed we will be.

(this can actually be sung to the tune of Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose for anyone that knows it)

Mother moon and Father Sun
Now our day is almost done
Watch over me here where I lie
From your home up in the sky
Free will for all and harm to none
As I have willed it; It shall be done.
And now its time for me to sleep
Sweet dreams for all and Blessed be.

Now I lay me down to rest
I pray that all the world be blessed
Lady Moon and Sister Star watch over me from afar
Mother Earth is always there
And keeps me safe within her care
The Lord of Dreams will dance and sing
And happy dreams to me will bring
And when I wake to greet the day
Brother Sun will light my way.

The earth is big and fat and round,
I love the sky, the sea and the ground,
I love the birds and dogs and sheep,
And all the animals that fall asleep,
I love the flowers and rocks and trees,
I love the earth, and it loves me.

Now I lay down in my bed,
And pull the covers up to my head.
I’ll dream of dragons and fairies bright,
And pixies and wizards and elves tonight.
I’ll dream of some sort of magical place, and
Wake in the morning with a smile on my face.
