Here is our collection of simple prayers. These are great prayers for children to memorize and say on a daily basis. There is no better way to start your day than with a simple christian prayer.
What makes a prayer simple? It certainly doesn’t mean that the prayer is not seen as valuable in God’s eyes.
Usually the prayer will be short, and often times it will rhyme as well. These characteristics help children, and those new to Christianity, learn how to pray. These prayers are perfect to teach to children to say on their own or as a group. These are great prayers to say in sunday school or in the class room.

Simple Prayers To Say at Night
This first prayer is a wonderful short prayer to say before bed. It is simple and easy to remember because it rhymes.
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep
Now I lay me down to sleep;
I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake.
I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to take;
And this I ask for Jesus’ sake.
Here is another rhyming prayer popular in Sunday schools and as a morning prayer or nightly prayer.
Jesus Lord I Pray to Thee
Jesus, Lord, to Thee I pray,
Guide and guard me through this day.
As the shepherd tends his sheep.
Lord, me safe from evil keep.
Keep my feet from every snare,
Keep me with Thy watchful care.
All my little wants supply
If I live or if I die.
And when life, O Lord, is past,
Take me to Thyself at last. Amen.
Simple Morning Prayers
Make a habit to say the prayers every morning before starting your day. Saying a prayer in the morning will help bring you closer to God, and give you strength and direction throughout your day.
Holy Jesus, Every Day
Holy Jesus, every day
Keep us in the narrow way,
And when earthly things are past,
Bring our ransomed souls at last
Where they need no star to guide.
Where no clouds Thy glory hide.
Now I awake and see the light
Now I awake and see the light;
Lord, Thou hast kept me through the night.
To Thee I lift my voice and pray
That Thou wilt keep me through the day.
If I should die before ’tis done,
O God, accept me through Thy Son!
Simple Christian Prayers
Here are a few more simple Christian prayers you might recognize. One way to help children memorize prayers is to put it to music. This next prayer is also a popular Christian hymn.
Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host:
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Lamb of God Prayer
Lamb of God, I look to Thee;
Thou shalt my example be;
Thou art gentle, meek, and mild,
Thou wast once a little child.
Fain I would be as Thou art:
Give me Thy obedient heart.
Thou art pitiful and kind:
Let me have Thy loving mind.
Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
In Thy gracious hands I am;
Make me, Savior, what Thou art,
Live Thyself within my heart.
I shall then show forth Thy praise,
Serve Thee all my happy days;
Then the world shall always see
Christ, the holy Child, in me.
Here is a nice short prayer for guidance:
Lamb of God Prayer
Direct me now, O gracious Lord,
To hear aright Thy holy Word;
Assist Thy minister to preach,
And let Thy Holy Spirit teach,
And let eternal life be found
By all who hear the joyful sound.
Ans a short prayer for healing
Tender Jesus Meek and Mild
Tender Jesus, meek and mild,
Look on me, a little child;
Help me, if it is Thy will,
To recover from all ill.

1. A Prayer to Keep Christmas Simple
Dear Lord, don’t let us miss You this Christmas season. Help us to simplify our activities and traditions so we can focus our celebration on Your birth. Thank You for being the Prince of Peace, and I ask You for that supernatural peace to reign in our hearts. Thank You for the simple but life-changing message of Your love for us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
~ Melanie Chitwood
2. A Prayer to Remember What Christmas is All About
Lord, I thank You for coming to earth so You could redeem me. When I think of the extent to which You were willing to go in order to save me, it makes me want to shout, to celebrate, and to cry with thankfulness. You love me so much, and I am so grateful for that love. Without You, I would still be lost and in sin. But because of everything You have done for me, today I am free; my life is blessed; Jesus is my Lord; Heaven is my home; and Satan has no right to control me. I will be eternally thankful to You for everything You did to save me! I pray this in Jesus’ name!
~ Rick Renner
3. A Prayer for Peace During Holiday Season
Lord, in a season when every heart should be happy and light, many of us are struggling with the heaviness of life—burdens that steal the joy right out of our Christmas stockings. Crazy weather disasters strike at unsuspecting areas, ravaging peaceful homes and interrupting the lives of unsuspecting residents. Tragedy arrives as innocent victims suffer, and an inner voice whispers, “Be afraid!” We need your peace, Jesus.
Lord, we still carol the wonderful message, huddled beneath winter caps on snow-covered porches, or from churches, led by enthusiastic musicians or choir members. Yet we confess that our hearts are too often filled with wonder of a different kind: wondering when the bills will be paid, when the terror will stop, when rest will come. Will it ever? Is the message still true?
In a world where worry, not peace, prevails, stir up that good news again. This Christmas, make it real in our hearts. Never have we needed Your joy and peace more than now. Thank You for the gift of Jesus, our Immanuel, the Word made flesh. Forgive us for forgetting—that Your love never changes, never fades, and that You never abandon the purpose for which You came: to save us from our sinful condition, and to give us life eternal, the joy of relationship with a holy God. Your birth—and Your death—sealed Your promise to us forever.
For those whose hearts are battered by sorrow or broken relationships, for those whose lives know only conflict and confusion, for those whose bodies are tired and tested beyond their ability to endure this year—precious Savior, draw them close to You. Let them know You are still the same Jesus who was born of a virgin, not in a hospital but an animal barn, laid in a manger of hay. You are still the One sent by a heavenly Father who offered not condemnation for our sins, but love and forgiveness—and daily, divine fellowship.
We not only need Your peace and joy; Lord, we crave it. You’ve promised rest for the weary, victory for the battle-scarred, peace for the anxious, and acceptance for the broken hearted—not just at Christmas, but every day of every year.
Release the joy in us that’s been crushed by pride, wrong priorities, or world events. Tear down the strongholds that have held us captive far too long. Extinguish the flames of apprehension that rob us of a calm, quiet spirit. Show us again the beauty of that holy night so many centuries ago.
Your name is still called “Wonderful,” “Counselor,” “The Mighty God,” “The Everlasting Father,” and “The Prince of Peace.” As Your children, we cry out for a fresh filling, and a new awareness of Who You are. We choose by faith to make the “good news of great joy” a reality in our own lives, so others can see us as lighted trees of life, pointing to You this Christmas. We know one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that You are Lord. And we also know that peace on earth can only come when hearts find peace with You.
You are still our Joy. You are still our Peace. You are no longer a babe in the manger. You are Lord of lords and King of kings. And we still celebrate You as Lord—this Christmas and always.
~ Rebecca Barlow Jordan
4. Christmas Eve Benediction/Prayer
May you be filled with the wonder of Mary, the obedience of Joseph, the joy of the angels, the eagerness of the shepherds, the determination of the magi, and the peace of the Christ child. Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit bless you now and forever.
5. A Short Prayer of Christmas Thanks
Thank you God for sending Your Son on one glorious night to be born a virgin, to live a perfect life and to die on the cross for my sins. Thank you that he rose from the dead three days later and that this Christmas and every Christmas we can celebrate the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Amen.
6. A Prayer to Keep God at the Center During the Holidays
Lord, We worship You during this Christmas season. You are our wonderful Counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). We choose to put You at the center of our family life as we celebrate Your birth. Keep us from distractions and help us to invite You into all our family activities. Teach us to pray and help us to glorify and worship You in our family during this busy time of year. Give us a spirit of wisdom and revelation that we might know You better (Ephesians 1:17). Thank you for being Immanuel, “God with us.” Open our eyes to realize this each day as we interact with others. Help us to be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as You forgave us (Ephesians 4:32). Show us creative ways to love and care for those outside our home. Fill us to overflowing with Your love for the lost. Teach us to do acts of kindness to those who are in need at this time of year. May our family be a refreshment and light to others. We ask You to touch with salvation those in our family who do not know You . Open their hearts to Your great love for them. Help us to share Your Truth and be Your light. You are the Savior of the world.
We love Your Word and choose to make it central in our family life. Your Word is alive and active—It’s sharper than any double-edged sword—It judges the thoughts and attitudes of our hearts (Hebrews 4:12). We long to align ourselves spiritually with You and Your Word every day. We want to pray your Word with Your authority, and with greater faith and obedience in our lives as we approach this New Year. We rejoice in following Your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. We meditate on Your precepts and consider Your ways. We delight in Your decrees. We will not neglect Your Word. Open our eyes that we may see wonderful things in Your law. We run in the path of Your commands, for You have set our hearts free (Psalm 119:14-16, 18, 32).
Lord, we want to be passionate about the things you are passionate about. Help each member of our family to be a student of the Bible. Teach us to pray Your Word out loud in our family devotions in such a way that we see mighty spiritual breakthroughs in our home, friends, school, and workplace. Help us declare prophetic promises and decrees from Your Word. We want to experience the life-giving power of Your Word on a daily basis in our family. Show us truth in Your Word, and bring it to life through our prayers. Open the eyes of our hearts that we may be enlightened in order to know the hope to which You have called us, the riches of our glorious inheritance in You and Your incomparable great power (Ephesians 1:18-19). In Jesus’ name, Amen.

7. A Prayer for the Merry…and the Not-So-Merry
Father God, We thank You and praise You today for the miracle of Your Son’s birth. Thank You for bringing great JOY to the whole world! Thank You for giving us the assurance that because You came to us in the form of a human, we who believe in Jesus can know with absolute certainty that we’ll spend eternity with You.
We thank You, Lord, for the many reasons we have been given a merry Christmas. And we rejoice for each blessing. New life. New love. A home. A job. New opportunities. Second chances. And more.
We know, Lord, that You bring the sun and the moon and set the stars in motion. You tell the ocean where to stop and the snow when to start. And we thank You for the mighty gift of Your creation.
Thank You, Father, for spiritual leaders and faith-filled friends who keep encouraging us when we are close to giving up.
And although we have many reasons to rejoice today, Lord, we also know December 25th can be not-so-merry for a whole host of reasons. We pray for those who are experiencing loss this Christmas: relational, financial, spiritual and physical.
We pray for those who are coping with loving a prodigal and our friends and family members whose hearts are far from You. We pray for those dealing with unemployment and addictions and chronic sickness … and unending pain and frustrations of all kinds. Thank You, Lord, that You are The Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace, even in the midst of our not-so-merry circumstances.
Finally, Lord, we ask You to grant us peace. Peace in our homes, peace in our churches, and peace in our hearts, when the world all around us spins out-of-control. Help us to stay focused on You, this Christmastime and always. Thank You for loving the whole world enough to send the greatest gift, Your Son, so that we might truly have a very merry Christmas. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
~ Steph Raquel
8. A Prayer to Re-focus During the Holiday Season
Dear God, sometimes I get too caught in the Christmas commercialism. OK, a lot of times. Today, I’m going to refocus my heart and remember why I’m celebrating this wonderful day in the first place. I’m celebrating Jesus today…and every day! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
~ Sharon Jaynes
9. A Prayer for the Days After Christmas
Dear God, Help us to focus on you today, remembering that the gift of Christ, Immanuel, is our most treasured gift for the whole year through. Fill us with your joy and the peace of your Spirit. Direct our hearts and minds towards you. Thank you for your reminder that both in seasons of celebration and in seasons of brokenness, you’re still with us. You never leave us. Thank you for your daily Presence in our lives, that we can be assured your heart is towards us, your eyes are over us, and your ears are open to our prayers. Thank you that you surround us with favor as with a shield, we are safe in your care. We choose to press in close to you today… In Jesus’ name, Amen.
~ Debbie McDaniel
10. A Christmas Tree Blessing (taken from Psalm 96 and Ezekial 17)
Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary. Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth. Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. Let all creation rejoice before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness. – Psalm 96 “‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain. On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches. All the trees of the forest will know that I the LORD bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. “ ‘I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.’” – Ezekial 17:22-24
11. “Lord, Remind Me” Prayerful Song
When I hear the news and hear another war has begun
And I wonder if God’s on the side of either one
I hear bullet, nail, or handcuff he bore all of them And in the light my heart’s as dark as anyone’s
Lord, remind me
Lord, remind me
That the shepherds heard the angels break the silence in the field
That the wise men found a baby and they could not help but kneel
That the one who heard our weeping, became a child in manger sleeping
Lord, remind me
‘Cause it’s Christmas and I want to remember
~ Jon Guerra
12. Happy Birthday Jesus Prayer
Father, today I celebrate the reality of Your presence in my life. I celebrate Your birth, Your life, Your death, and Your resurrection. And as I celebrate, Lord, help me to be “God with skin on” to those in need around me. Open my eyes and let me see them as You see them! I love You. Happy birthday Jesus! In Jesus name, Amen.
~ Mary Southerland, Girlfriends in God

I used to think prayer was hard. It only counted, I thought, if I spent, oh, a half hour or more on my knees. It had to be focused, orderly and systematic. And, again, the longer the better.
Then I realized that none of my other relationships work that way. I don’t often schedule a “meeting” with my wife in the morning or sit my kids down for a half-hour or hour-long speech (not that they wouldn’t say it sometimes felt that way to them).
My exchanges with family and friends more often come in bite-sized chunks: “Love you!” “Do we need milk?” “Whose turn is it to let the dog out?”
So if you’re anything like me, (1) you have my sympathies, and (2) you might find it more natural, relational and doable to pray a few simple prayers throughout the course of your day.
Ask Guideposts’ OurPrayer team to pray for you!
Here are seven simple prayers, with accompanying scripture references, to show that you’re in good company in praying each one:
1) Here I am. (Isaiah 6:8)
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Samuel, and Isaiah are all recorded as having prayed the “Here I am” prayer. It works best first thing in the morning, a way of reporting for duty and being “present” to God.
2) You are great. (Psalm 86:10, NIV)
A sunrise. Fresh orange juice. A cool breeze. A baby’s smile. A shooting star. Any number of things throughout your day may prompt you to say, with David, “You are great and do marvelous deeds; You alone are God.”
3) Thank you. (Psalm 138:1, The Message)
Certainly at meal times, but even the worst day includes many reasons to tell God, “Thank You! Everything in me says ‘Thank You!’”
4) Help. (Psalm 38:22, KJV)
Whether your need is big or small, every day presents multiple opportunities to pray this simple prayer: “Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.”
5) Bless. (Psalm 67:1, NIV)
Whether it’s just one or two words (“bless him”) or more (“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine on us”), this everyday prayer can be a request to heal, prosper, encourage, strengthen, comfort or deliver someone.
6) Sorry. (Psalm 38:18, ESV)
I won’t tell you how often every day I pray this prayer. Suffice it to say, I have found out the sooner I express my repentance, the better—often using the words of David, “I confess my iniquity; I am sorry for my sin.”
7) I love you. (John 21:17, ESV)
One morning at breakfast, Jesus gave Peter three opportunities to express his love for the Lord, until Peter finally said, “Lord, You know everything; You know that I love You.” “I love You” is a great thing to say many times a day to God.
That’s it. Just seven simple prayers. Some as few as 14 words. But they work in so many situations throughout any given day that they can make prayer more doable, no matter what your schedule may be.
Joanna (Luke 8:1-3, Luke 21:4-12)
Joanna was healed of evil spirits and infirmities by Jesus. She later supported Jesus and His disciples in their travels. Joanna which means “God is gracious” stayed with Jesus through the crucifixion and later was one of the three women who visited His tomb early on Easter morning and found it empty.
Dorcas (Acts 9:36-43)
Dorcas (Tabitha in Hebrew) was a beloved woman who was always doing good and helping the poor. When she died, her friends called Peter and showed him the beautiful garments she had made for the widows. Peter was moved by her legacy and prayed at her bedside. Miraculously, Dorcus was brought back to life! As a result, many believed in the Lord.
Anna (Luke 2:36-38)
Anna’s husband died after only seven years of marriage. Instead of remarrying, she dedicated her life in service to the Lord. Anna was rewarded with perfect timing as she arrived at the temple at the very moment Jesus was blessed by Simeon. From that point forward, Anna praised God and told everyone she met about Jesus.
Noah’s wife: (Genesis 7:7)
Though the Bible does not give Noah’s wife a name, according to Jewish tradition her name is Naamah. Little is written about her, but we can only imagine that she must have been faithful to God and a loyal wife and loving woman to support and believe in Noah throughout the building of the ark and the seven month journey afloat.
Zipporah (Exodus 2:10-22, 18:1-27)
Zipporah and her sisters were threatened at their father’s well and Moses came to the rescue, defending them. In time Zipporah married Moses and she gave birth to two sons. “One son was named Gershom, for Moses said, “I have become a foreigner in a foreign land”; and the other was named Eliezer, for he said, “My father’s God was my helper; he saved me from the sword of Pharaoh.” (Exodus 18: 3-4).
Abigail (1 Samuel 25)
Abigail was the wife of Nabal, which literally translates to fool. Nabal insulted David and Abigail interceded, saving their lives. After Nabal’s death, she became David’s wife. Abigail’s life shows that a godly heart can react wisely during a crisis.
Shiphrah and Puah (Exodus 1:15)
The midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, stood in awe of God and disobeyed Pharoah’s outrageous order to kill all Hebrew males at birth. They protected the baby boys they delivered. It is believed they may have been the midwives who attended the birth of Moses and saved his life.
Rizpah (2 Samuel 3:7; 21:8-14)
Rizpah was a victim of vengeance. She was one of Saul’s concubines and had two of his sons. As restitution for Saul’s slaughter of Gibeonites, David demanded Rizpah’s sons be killed. Tragically, they were “hanged on a mountain” and left to rot and be eaten by animals. Heartbroken and determined, Rizpah stayed at the site of their execution for many months protecting their remains “until rain poured down from the heavens” –a sign that God had withdrawn His judgment. Eventually, David was persuaded to allow her sons’ bodies to be buried.
The light beaming from the glorious sun’s rays peek through your blinds. You can feel the light warming your face and you immediately rise with a smile on your face and an invigorating drive to for the day. You jump out of your bed ready to rise and greet the day. And then…you wake up because that’s not at all how any normal day begins, right? Everyone has a morning routine. Some are a little more labor intensive while others are less involved. Either way, each morning should start with two things – prayer and coffee.
After you’ve had your morning jolt of heaven in a cup, it’s important to begin each day with a conversation with your Lord and Savior. Instead of hitting the snooze button or choosing to prolong your morning routine, strive to be an early riser and spend some intimate time with God. Keep in mind, Jesus never hits the snooze button, so why should you?
If you’re any early riser and need simple morning prayers to start your day, keep reading and get inspired. These prayers can be recited when you’re eating breakfast, as you get your children ready for school or perhaps as you drive your daily commute to work.
Prayer of Thanks:
Thank you for this beautiful new day,
Help me live today, hand in hand with you.
Short, sweet and to the point. Each day that you’re able to wake up and embark on the endeavors of a new day is a great day. It doesn’t necessarily have to be sunny weather in order for things to have beauty – sometimes just the ability to have opportunities and live is beautiful enough. Each day, ask God, to stand by your side. It’s important that He hears your voice and that you be rejuvenated by His.
Prayer for a Good Day:
Lord, I trust in your unfailing love, in your promises.
I give this day and all that it holds to you.
May I walk in your goodness, knowing your gentle hand will guide me, and keep me.
Each day is up to the individual. Yes, there’s no doubt that hurdles and other catastrophic obstacles will come into play from time-to-time, but it’s important to realize that only you have the power to exude a positive mind frame. If you continue to bask in negativity, then you’ll find that the rest of your life is filled with those negative connotations. Allow the Lord to embody your simple morning prayer and ask Him to give you strength and guidance when you need it. The power of Jesus can get you through anything.
Pray for the Early Morning:
I come before you O Lord
As the sun rises may your hope rise up in me.
As the birds sing may your love flow out of me.
As the light floods into this new day,
May your joy shine through me.
I come before you, O Lord
And drink in this moment of peace,
That I may carry something of your hope, love and joy
Today in my heart.
Even though you’re only one person, with an invigorated spirit you can accomplish great things. You have the power to achieve greatness. Therefore, each day ask your Lord and Savior to replenish your desire to forge forward and to provide you with the strength to be successful. Listen when God speaks to you and do your best to carry out his wishes. Follow the path that He’s laying before you and look for ways you can continue to hold Him high.
Prayer for the Tiresome Days:
Father, clear my sleepy head and fill my mind with expectation
Awake my slow body and energize my heart with love in action.
Ignite my spirit and set this day on fire with promise.
Make the ordinary extraordinary.
Engage me, show me your kingdom alive
Help me to see that every waking moment is full of promise because of you.
Let’s face it, every day does not begin with sunshine and rainbows – figuratively or physically speaking. There will be days when you’re just tired and you need inspiration to get up and continue on. On these days, turn to this simple morning prayer and ask God to make the ordinary extraordinary. Ask Jesus to help you see the bigger picture and to get a better understanding of what He wants you to achieve. It’s important to look beyond the horizon without losing track of what’s important. Don’t be afraid to ask God for guidance and strength during this tiresome day – allow Him to assist you in being the best version of yourself that you are capable of being.
“My voice will come to you in the morning, O Lord, in the morning I will send my prayer to you, and keep watch.”
This is a beautiful scripture that references the intimacy of the Lord and His children. We all want nothing more than to be under the guidance and supervision of Jesus Christ. Each day we pray to Him for the strength and hope to honor His name by achieving great things.
And because we want to be safe, we ask that He look over us and our loved ones.
