Praying before you sleep presents a unique opportunity for us to connect with God. But before we go before God in Prayer, let’s bless our souls with these powerful scriptures.
Psalm 3:5, I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me. Psalm 103:1-2 – Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Now let us pray.
Father, sleep is a reminder that I am totally and completely dependent upon you. So as I go to sleep, I want to proclaim my total dependence upon you. As I drift off to sleep, it’s a clear reminder that I am not in control. I need you. I need you to sustain me through the night, and I need you to sustain me through my life.
I also declare that I trust in you. I trust you with the big things and the little things, with the happy things and the hard things. I trust you to deliver me out of evil and to lead me into paths of righteousness. You are my hope. My help. The lifter of my head.
Please protect me through the night, as well as those in my family. Keep us safe from Satan and his schemes. Keep our bodies working properly. Let us wake in the morning energized and in good health.
Please give me the grace of sleep. Give me the grace of strength. Allow me to wake refreshed in the morning.
I am your child and whatever I ask for, I surely will receive. Worry ends where faith begins, and I trust that You, Oh God, will lead me to victory. Be with me every day as victory approaches at the Throne of grace and mercy.
Dear Father, continue speaking to me every moment of everyday. Allow me to know the perfect peace that only You can provide.
Above everything, protect my mind and actions so that the enemy might not get through to me. Lord, I pray and ask that You give me the wisdom to deal with my circumstances. Light my path way through the dark tunnel. Grant me restful sleep tonight, in Jesus’ name, Amen!
