Saying your special night prayers for sleep and a few words of gratitude are significant, especially when you have a hard time sleeping during the night as you keep bothering yourself with the pains of the past and the uncertainties of tomorrow.

Spending time praying before you get your night’s rest will allow you to remember all the promises made by the Lord. It also provides a renewal of your thoughts to prepare you for the next day that the Lord will provide for you. Apart from God’s word through the Bible verses, you can always feed your soul with these prayers that you pray before you sleep.

Prayer For Sleep And Good Stewardship

God in Heaven,

Please give me the rest I need to fulfill my duty as the steward of your creation.

Remind me that to take care of your creation, I must first take care of myself.

Grant me the energy that I need, Lord.

I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ, your son.


In peace, I will lie down and sleep; for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.

— Psalm 4:8

Prayer For Sleep After A Hard Day’s Work

Dear Father,

As I sleep tonight, let your spirit speak and allow me to find rest in your strong and loving arms.

Be the good shepherd you are to all your children and lead us to green pastures.

Allow us not to grow weary and touch our anxious hearts that are rooted in the tiring experiences we encounter today.

Oh, Father in heaven, let your loving care and presence take away the stress and protect us against the things that challenge our faith.

Grant every physical body rest throughout the night.

The next day will be a good day to start all over again.

In Jesus’ name, we pray.


It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat, for God gives rest to his loved ones.

— Psalm 127:2

Good Night Prayer Before Going To Bed

Dear Lord God,

Oh, heavenly Father, allow me to have a peaceful sleep beneath this vast night sky.

As I fall asleep, may I rest tonight and have the most peaceful dreams before I boldly face the pleasant morning light that your Son, Jesus Christ, has promised.

As I go on with my nightly routine, allow me to reminisce about the fun times I had with my friends and family during that day.

Allow me to carry these memories as I sleep, and help me not to think of all my problems before bedtime.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.


May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

— Romans 15:13

Prayer For Sleep And Renewal

Lord Jesus,

As the whole world sleeps, use your mighty power and devices to bring us the renewal that we need.

Allow your creations to rest in the same way that we do.

Let the resources replenish, for we need them.

Allow us to be your good stewards and take care of all you have given to your people.

Let life here on earth be renewed, and may it continue to have a harmonious relationship for the coming generations.

I offer this beautiful prayer to you.


Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

— Matthew 11:28–29

Prayer For Sleep For A Silent Night

Lord God,

Please grant me a restful and silent night ahead.

Allow me to hear my thoughts and give me the chance to recall the things that happened today.

Let your peace be a moving force in my life, assisting me in realizing everything I have done wrong.

Help me learn from my mistakes so I can know the consequences of my wrong actions.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.


I lie down and sleep; I wake again because the Lord sustains me.

— Psalm 3:5

Prayer For Sleep For Spiritual Growth

Lord in Heaven,

As I close my eyes, work on my life, and receive the encouragement I need to strive for growth in my spiritual aspect, please give me the chance to follow your footprints embedded in the sand, and do not let evil misguide me in everything I do.

Be the vanguard of my spiritual life, and do not let me fall into the pits of hell and suffer everlasting pain.

Deliver me, Lord, in the name of Jesus, your Son.


Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.

— Deuteronomy 33:12

Prayer For Sleep And Forgiveness

Dear Lord,

As I prepare for a good night’s sleep, I humbly come before your mighty presence and ask for your forgiveness for all the wrongs that I have done that have caused fear, worry, and anxiety in me.

Grant me the power not to dwell on the past, and let me see the joy, hope, and peace that resemble a river overflow.

Help me not to focus on the wrong things; bless me so that I do not rely on my understanding; and get me back on my feet so that I can use the strength you have given me, Oh heavenly Father.

All of this I ask in Jesus’ name.


If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

— 1 John 1:9

Prayer Before Sleep To Have Your Strength Restored

Lord God,

As I rest for the night, I pray that my strength will be restored.

Allow this night to be the refuge I need to continue doing what I love every day.

May this night replenish all the energy I’ve expended for myself and my family at work or school.

Oh Lord, do not let the struggles I face each day drain me; restore me instead.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.


He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.

— Isaiah 40:29–31

God, our Creator,

Allow me to not worry about the things that are out of my control.

I ask for your protection, Lord, for me, my friends, and my family.

Remind my thoughts to stop spinning around the disappointing moment that happened.

As I lie here and sleep tonight, bless me with your grace in words and allow me not to be afraid of all the uncertain times that lie ahead of me, dear Lord.

All these things I pray for in Jesus’ name.


Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

As I am counting sheep and waiting for my sweet rest to let this good night pass, allow me to lie down on my bed with your promise and grace for me to tone down whatever I am feeling this day.

Allow me to be grateful for your blessings.

Bless me and guard me against all feelings of anxiety that prevent me from falling asleep.

Hear me as I seek your mighty presence.

I confess to you all the sins that I have committed for the entire day.

Help me not fall into my spiral of recurring mistakes.

I am guilty of all these accusations, but as I lie in bed, allow my soul to have peace and hope that I may choose the right path as I wake up tomorrow.

I am your child, Lord. I have faith in you, and I cast all my troubles before your mighty spirit.

Keep my calm for tonight and the rest of the evening so that I may wake up tomorrow morning without feelings of fear, doubt, and restlessness.

Empower me, God, and talk to me as I have my restful sleep.


Children are a heritage from the Lord, and offspring are a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior, children are born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

— Psalm 127:3–5
