A Prayer For Restful Sleep

We all want to be more successful in life, but what about being successful at living? Sometimes we stretch our daily routines and schedules so thin that stress has a way of getting the best of us. Emotions get out of control and cause us to lose sight of our mental fortitude. We need to understand that there is an escape from this pattern. There is a solution for those who are yearning for a better way of thinking (and feeling). You should recite a Prayer For Restful Sleep. Articles on topics like “short prayer before sleep”, “powerful night prayer”, and “prayer for sleep and anxiety” are also available on our blog.

Dear Lord,

I come to You tonight with a heavy heart. I know many of us are going through tough times right now, but I want to take a moment to focus on myself. I’ve been feeling really tired lately, and it’s making me feel so much older than my years. I’m only 24 years old, Lord! How am I supposed to be feeling this exhausted all the time?

I know that You’re busy with so many other people, but maybe You could spare a moment for me tonight. Not just because I need help—but because You love me anyway. Because even though I’m young and healthy and have a lot going for me in life… sometimes it’s hard for me not to feel like there’s so much more to do and so little time left in which we can do it.

Please give me peace tonight, Lord. Let me sleep peacefully knowing that You’re watching over me while I rest my body and mind from all the stressors of daily life. Help me remember how much You love each one of us individually—and that You created us with purpose in mind!

12 Good Night Prayers Before Sleep & Bed

A Prayer For Restful Sleep

Oh Lord, help me sleep.

  • Focus on the fact that you will be asleep soon.
  • Think about how good you’ll feel when you wake up.

Give me rest, dear Lord.

To heal the heart and mind, please help me to let go of the day’s worries. Help me to unclench my teeth and relax my body.

Let me sleep soundly tonight, Lord, knowing that I am in your care.

Fill my mind with good dreams, my heart with warmth, and my eyes with hope.

Negative thoughts, feelings and language are the enemy of peaceful sleep. As you go to bed tonight, think about what you want to wake up to tomorrow morning. Be positive! Use positive language that emphasizes what something is rather than what it isn’t, for example:

  • You will have a great time at the party instead of “I won’t be bored.”
  • You’ll have a wonderful time with your friends instead of “I won’t be lonely.”
  • You’ll meet someone special tonight instead of “I hope I don’t get stood up again.” Keep this attitude going in your mind through the night and into tomorrow morning when you wake up refreshed and ready for whatever comes your way!

Let there be no regrets as I sleep further from the world and closer to you.

  • “Let there be no regrets as I sleep further from the world and closer to you. I will lie in my bed, watching the sun set, and pray that my thoughts are all of you.

I have been wracked with regret these past few months; I should have done this or that differently in the past. But what’s done is done, and now I must let it go. The future holds such promise for me—for us—and those who do not live fully in it will only miss out on all its wonder.”

  • “In recognition of how much joy can be found in living one’s life with unbridled enthusiasm, please help me find myself again.”

Keep an eye over my heart and soul as I slumber.

As you rest, I pray that you’ll keep an eye over my heart and soul as I slumber. May you protect me from all that is evil, so that I may wake up refreshed and ready to face the day.

I know that prayer helps calm the mind, as well as the body; it is a time for quiet reflection on all things good. And if it’s not already obvious: sleep well!

Wrap your arms around me, enveloping me in gentle peace.

I know that my health, my emotions and my ability to function will be greatly improved if I get enough sleep. You have told us that if we ask, our heavenly Father “will give us the desires of our heart” (Psalm 37:4). I desire to sleep without interruption or anxiety so I can feel rested and refreshed when it is time to start another day. Help me remember this as I drift off tonight—that you are always there with me, surrounding me with your divine peace and security.

Let any thoughts that arise be positive and helpful.

Let any thoughts that arise be positive and helpful.

As you drift off to sleep, let your mind wander over pleasant memories from the day. Your body will relax more deeply as it perceives restful images, sounds, and thoughts in the environment around you. If worries intrude on your dreams—which may happen occasionally—try not to be upset by them; simply acknowledge them as part of a normal thought process that can occur during sleep. You can even think of them as being like visitors who come into your bedroom at night: they stay for a while, but then leave when they realize there’s nothing interesting happening here anymore!

It is important not to let worries disturb our dreams – this only makes it harder for us to fall asleep at night and is likely unhealthy over time because worrying often leads us into a state where our bodies produce stress hormones which may cause health problems down the road if we don’t find ways such as exercise or meditation that reduce those levels produced during stressful episodes like worrying about what might go wrong tomorrow instead focusing on what needs doing today!

Let any images that appear be beautiful and peaceful.

  • Let your mind relax. When it comes to prayer, it’s okay if you sometimes have trouble getting your thoughts in order. The important thing is that you’re able to get them out there and let God work through you.
  • Think about what matters most to you, or what’s on your heart right now. Do this before falling asleep so that when the night gets dark and quiet, everything will feel peaceful and beautiful (and not scary).
  • Shut off all screens at least half an hour before bedtime so they don’t distract from your restful slumber later on!
  • You might also want to consider doing some yoga or meditation beforehand—not only will these help prepare for a good night’s sleep but they’ll also help relieve stress if any has built up during the day!

And let all worries fade away before they disturb the stillness of my dreams.

The Lord will help you sleep peacefully.

Sleep is a time for resting and recovering. It’s important that we let go of our worries and focus on what’s most important in life—that is, being grateful to God for all He has given us and having peace within our hearts as we strive to follow Him through His Son Jesus Christ. When we rest, the Lord can heal us from any illness or condition of worry or stress that comes upon us while we’re awake. If we are not at peace with ourselves, it will be difficult for us to fall asleep peacefully; however, if we have faith in God’s love for us and His promise that He will provide everything our hearts desire (Philippians 4:7), then there should never be anything to worry about when it comes time for bedtime!

Calm down and let the Lord work through you

“Lord, I thank you for my restful sleep. I know that you’re in control and that you can take care of me. Help me to calm down and trust in your ability to work through me today.

Let’s start with meditation on God’s word before bed:

Psalm 4:8-9 says, “You have set our feet in a spacious place; You have made us glad by Your deeds… For You will light my lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness” (NKJV).

When we meditate on God’s word before going to sleep, we are reminded of who He is and how He cares for us. We also see how His goodness shines through even when things don’t go as planned or turn out the way we want them too! This helps put our worries into perspective so they don’t keep us up at night!
