Night Prayer or Bedtime Prayers

Teaching our kids bedtime prayer is a wonderful tool for leading them into a relationship with Jesus and for initiating a lifestyle of dependence on God. A lot of children have fears of nightmares which can be prevented by always praying to God at night.  This also offers the opportunity to draw near to God and get to know Him more as a loving father who protects and comforts.

Bedtime prayer has the potential to instill in children certain values like prayer, trust, and thankfulness.

There are so many Bedtime Prayers out there and they are usually in the form of a poem so that children would be able to memorize them easily. Here are a couple:

Dear Daddy God in heaven

Thank you for this happy dayForgive me too dear AbbaFor bad things done I pray

Go tuck me now in Your embrace

All night watch over meAnd shower sweet dreams’til tomorrow  when I will rise again to play!

~~~~~~~~~~

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

Amen

nighttime prayer for baby

Here is another of my favorite board books:

Prayer for a Child

by Rachel Field. This classic Caldecott Award winner is a beautifully illustrated nighttime prayer. I teared up the first time I read it to Little Page. Holding her in my lap, her freshly-washed little head resting against my chest, I read this prayer out loud and felt incredibly blessed by the experience. The poem is quaint but beautiful, asking blessing on those quiet aspects of a child’s life: her milk, toys, friends, family. The illustrations of a little blond child in her victorianesque life are sweet and compliment the lines of the poem perfectly.

I think this book works as a board book because each page contains only a line or two of text. I don’t know about your baby, but Littlest Page has the attention span of, well, a 10-month-old. She also loves turning pages, so the less text on a page, the better. This book is just the right length. The pictures are colorful and simple enough to hold a baby’s attention. Littlest P likes to give one picture in particular big, sloppy kisses. I couldn’t ask for a better endorsement!
