Prayer for sleepless nights

During the stillness of the night, I can hear nothing but the silence that surrounds me. I can hear it because I am wide awake, while all the world around me is at rest.

Father, I cannot find the words to tell you what’s wrong but, even so, I know You understand me.

Search my heart, Oh Lord. Take away the pain, take away the suffering, take away the troubles.

Restore peace and tranquility in my life. Give me strength to go on for I am tired and weary, but yet my eyes are wide open.

Psalm 4:8 – I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.

Isaiah 26:3 – You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trust in you.

You alone know what I have been through and what I am going through at present and all that I ask is that You help me through it.

Saviour, please hear my humble cry. I lie here sleepless because it worries me, I feel so burdened and alone. Please comfort me, I need You now more than ever.

Proverbs 3:23-24 – Then you will walk safely in your way, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.

Wrap Your gentle arms around me as I sob quietly into the night. Restore that joy and happiness I once knew, for pain only endures for the night and surely joy comes in the morning.

Allow me to find rest before the morning draws near, so that I can go out and face the world and all that life has to throw at me, in confidence and with a smile, assured that You are always with me and the battle is already won! In Jesus mighty name, Amen!

There’s no limit as to how many times we should pray in a day. There’s also no specific time required to pray to God. However, each and every one of us has his or her preferences when it comes to praying. At the end of the day, what matters most is that you were able to have a personal conversation with God.

Nonetheless, if you ask me, my favorite time to pray is before I sleep. Why? It allows me to look back on the day that has passed and it makes me reflect better. I pray about what happened, my worries, the challenges I overcame that day, how thankful I am and more importantly, how I look forward to better things the next day.

So today, I’d like to share with you 5 bedtime prayers that you and your family can share before sleeping. Here they are:

1. A Child’s Bedtime Prayer

This prayeris perfect for the little ones who are still learning about our Lord God. The prayer uses simple rhymes, which I’m sure your little one will master without a hitch.

A Child’s Bedtime Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep.

 I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take. If I should live for other days, I pray the Lord to guide my ways.

Father, unto thee I pray,

 Thou hast guarded me all day; Safe I am while in thy sight, Safely let me sleep tonight. Bless my friends, the whole world bless; Help me to learn helpfulness; Keep me every in thy sight; So to all I say good night.

2. A Short Protection Prayer

Evil things are everywhere which is why we must be persistent and consistent when it comes to asking God and his angels to protect our family. It is only through Himthat we can find comfort and peace of mind that we will indeed be safe and protected in God’s hands.

Through Him

Dear Lord,

The evening comes, the day is done. Let peace wash over my household throughout the dark of night and in the few still hours of the next morning. Wipe away our troubles. Cleanse us of worry and doubt. Through You, may Your magnificent good be our protection forever more.

Amen

3. A Family’s Prayer

One of the best feelings in the world is to pray together with your family, whether it’d be before meals, after bible study or before going to sleep. I’ve always believed in the saying that “a family that prays together, stays together.” There’s this extra special comfort you feel when you see each other professing faith and love to God all at the same time. Share this Good Night Prayer to your family tonight.

Good Night Prayer

Lord

You bless us as we rest
Restore us as we sleep
You care for us as we drift off
And make our dreaming sweet

You are the safest place
You are the God of Grace
Forgiven, loved and held by you
Is each small seed of faith

You know our thoughts and feelings
You see our deep desires
You understand our weariness
And catch each tear we cry

You walk beside us every day
You are a constant friend
You stay with us all through the night
On you we can depend

4. A Thankful Prayer

At the end of everyday, what we should never forget to do is thank God for all the blessings he has given us. Actually, we should also thank him for the not-so good things that happened because these things happen for a reason. I really like this Thankful Prayer and I hope your family will include this prayer in your prayer routine too.

Father, We Thank Thee

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.

Rebecca Weston – 1890

5. A Prayer for Sleepless Nights

There are nights when we really can’t sleep. Our worries and anxious thoughts take over our minds and it makes our hearts restless. If you always experience this before going to bed, I suggest you try this prayer to calm your heart, mind and spirit. 

A PRAYER FOR WHEN I CAN’T SLEEP

Dear Father,

I can’t sleep.

I’m tossing and turning. Again.

I’m so thankful You never grow weary

And You never sleep.

I’m thankful that You are here with me right now,

Even when my mind won’t stop churning…

And my head won’t stop spinning.

Even when I know that worrying gets me nowhere

And my heart needs to rely on You.

I need You- the Good Shepherd-

Because counting sheep just doesn’t work.

Would you comfort my heart as only You can?

Will you rescue me from my own spiral of thoughts?

For I know that when I rest in You,

peace like a river overflows my soul and

I can praise You in advance for sweet rest.

Amen

When our day comes to an end, let’s not forget what really matters the most–praying to our Lord Jesus Christ. Let Him take away your worries, strengthen your heart to overcome troubles and encourage you to look forward to more purposeful days ahead.
