Bedtime Prayer If I Die Before Waking

Lord how I thank You that my times are under Your control and authority.. and that nothing can pluck me out of Your hands, without Your knowledge and Your consent. Thank You for this day knowing that has been such a blessing and joy to me.. and thank You that every passing moment has been such a gracious gift and blessing from You.

I pray that You will bring me safely through the night.. but Lord should it be the time for me to breath my last breath in this world, I pray that I will rest securely in Your arms and be ready to meet You face to face.

Thank You that You have prepared a home for me in heaven and that my citizenship is not here on the earth but with You, in heavenly places - and I pray that when that day comes, when I shall see You as You are, that I will hear Your voice saying, “well done good and faithful servant.”

And so Lord I commit myself into Your hands knowing that whether I wake in the morning in this world or sleep into the next, that I am help securely in Your hands, through time and into eternity - thank You in Jesus name,


“Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.”
