Bedtime Prayer For Families

Dear Lord Jesus, it is time for us to get to bed. We thank You that You are with us all the time and throughout the hours of darkness. Thank You, that You never leave us and that You have promised to be with us throughout the night.

Give us all a good night rest we pray, and help us not to allow our thoughts to wander aimlessly through our minds so as to keep us awake, but may we settle down securely, knowing that sleep is a precious gift from You, so that we may be ready to do all the things that You have prepared for us to do tomorrow.

Forgive us for the wrong things we have done today, and thank You that Your love for us never fails and that Your mercies are new every morning. Thank You, that You died on the cross to pay the price us from our sins and save us, so that we can live together with You in heaven..
Thank You, that nothing can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Help us all to rest securely in You, in the knowledge that we are Your children and You are our gracious God. This we ask in Jesus' name,

“As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
“And Mizpah; for he said, The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.”
