Bedtime Prayer For The Lonely

Loving heavenly Father as the night is fast approaching I pray that as I climb into bed I may rest my weary soul in You and allow all the business of the day to melt away. Help me Lord to find my rest in You and as I keep my heart abiding in You.

Lord so many things are changing in my life and at times I feel so lonely as those that are nearest and dearest to me have been taken from me to – for one reason or another…. Lord I know that You have promised to be with me every moment of the day and night – but somehow the night time makes me feel more on my own.

Hold me close Lord Jesus and as I face the long night of darkness I pray that I may sleep securely, knowing that You are by my bed every moment of the night. Thank You that moment by moment I am kept in Your love –

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
(Isaiah 41:10)
