Evening Prayers

Evening Prayer For Forgiveness

Heavenly Father, thank You for bringing me through this day and Lord, forgive me for the times when I have wandered outside Your best will for me, instead of trusting You implicitly.
Thank You, that You are such a gracious Shepherd to me and that You come and rescue me even when I lose my way and stray from the path that You have laid out for me.
As I look back over today, I know Lord that there were things that I should have said and done differently, and times when I reacted in a manner that was not honouring to Your holy name. Forgive me I pray, but thank You, Father, that You always faithfully prepared to gently bring me back to Yourself.
Give me a good nights sleep I pray, knowing that there is no condemnation because I am in Christ, and may I wake up in the morning refreshed and ready to do Your will. In Jesus' name I pray,

Evening Prayer For Future Guidance

Heavenly Father, as I lie down to sleep tonight, I pray that You would guard my sleeping and protect my mind from wandering thoughts and unnecessary planning. Teach me to wait for Your perfect timing and not to try to plan my future in my own strength.
Lord, I know that You have scheduled every day of my life. Help me to trust You in all things and rely on You to lead me along the straight path and guide me in the direction that You would have me to go.
Give me patience to wait for Your perfect timing, and may I not trust in my own abilities and scheming, but rather rest in Your love and trust my future into Your hands.
And so now Lord, I commit this night to you, asking that I would rest soundly and wake refreshed and strong to do Your bidding. This I ask in Jesus' precious name,

Evening Prayer For Protection For The Future

Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, thank You, that You are always there for me and that You have promised never to leave me not to forsake me. Father, there are an increasing number of evils in the world that can cause our hearts of fear, but I know that You have promised to be with me, to protect and to defend, even to the end of the age.
Place Your hand of protection over me I pray, and cover those that I love with Your peace and grace, comfort and hope. Help me to trust You in all things, and may I never forget that no matter what happens in this life You have promised to be my Protector and Provider, my Rock and my Shield of defence.
Let me sleep soundly tonight I pray, and keep the looming shadows of darkness and fear far from my heart. This I ask in Jesus' name,

Evening Prayer Of Surrender

Loving Lord, as I settle down for the night I just want to thank You for all that You are to me and praise Your holy name for all that You have done for me, and all that You are going to do for me in the days that lie ahead.
Lord, I know that I am not worthy to undo Your shoes-laces, and yet You have lifted me up out of the miry clay, and seated me together with Christ in heavenly places. What a good and gracious God You are. 
Father, I simply want to surrender all I am to You and offer my life as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You, for You have saved my life from the pit of destruction and clothed me in the righteousness of Christ. You have brought me in to Your own, heavenly family and reserved for me an inheritance in heaven that will not fade away. You alone are worthy of my love and praise and I surrender all I am to You tonight and pray that Your will not mine be carried out in my life, from this day forward, even for evermore. In Jesus' name I pray,

Prayer For Grace At The End Of The Day

Heavenly Father, as the day is drawing to its close I ask that Your continued love and presence be with me and with all that that are Your children in Christ. Guard us through the long hours of darkness this night I pray, and keep us safe from all harm and dangers that may try to cross our threshold.

Give us I pray, an untroubled night of rest and quietness of heart. May we be refreshed and renewed in body, soul and spirit as we rest our weary hearts in You through the hours of the night.

Lord, I pray that by Your great grace and mercy, You would grant us untroubled sleep so that we may rise up in the morning strong to do Your bidding. May we all rejoice for the dawn of a new day, knowing that Your mercies are new every morning. In Jesus' name,


Prayer Of Reflection On The Past Day

Loving Lord, as the day is coming to an end, I want thank You for being with me in all that has taken place today. I also want to lay the whole day before You, asking that you would show me if there is anything that I have done to hurt or harm another person unknowingly, or if I have done anything that is displeasing in Your sight, or quenched the work of the Spirit in me, so that I may turn away from such things in the days that lie ahead.

Lord, I desire to do Your will in all things. I pray that You would cleanse me of any wrong thoughts or attitudes that may have surfaced in my heart today. Wash me in Your cleansing flood, I pray.

Thank You, that You are a God who forgives our transgressions when we are willing to confess them to You, knowing that such cleansing before You immediately draws us back into sweet fellowship with Yourself.

Give me a good nights rest I pray, and may I rest quietly in Your loving arms in the knowledge that in Christ, I am eternally secure, due to Your amazing grace, for which I praise You. In Jesus' name,


Prayer Of Thanksgiving In The Evening

Praise Your holy name Heavenly Father, for granting yet another day in my life and for being with me every step of the way. Thank You for the many blessings that You have provided and the love and fellowship that I have with the friends and family that in Your grace You have placed in my life.
My heart is so thankful for all the many blessings that I enjoy day by day, and today I am once again reminded that Your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness endures from generation to generation.
Thank You, that I have been brought into Your family and have been made a child of God and a citizen of heaven. Words cannot express my love and devotion to You Lord
I pray that You would watch over me as I rest tonight, and that You would give me a restful nights sleep so that I may wake up in the morning refreshed in body and spirit and ready to do Your will. Guard all those that I love and may we all grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ in the days that lie ahead. This I ask in His precious name,
