15 Short Night Prayers To Say Before Bed

It’s just as vital to pray at the end of the day as it is to pray at the beginning. The majority of people are guilty of going to bed without saying a prayer. God, on the other hand, is a merciful and compassionate God who watches over us until morning, even if we don’t pray.

Most night prayers are based on how our day went and what we want from God. But if you’re not sure what to say, here are some suggestions for night prayers to say before bed.

Psalm 91 night prayer

O Lord, I submit my soul unto You, and I turn my face towards You, and I totally rely on You, and I entrust my affair unto You, in hope and fear of You. Verily there is no refuge nor safe haven from You except with You. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress, my Lord, in whom I trust.” Surely You will save me from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. You will cover me with Your feathers, and under Your wings, I will find refuge; Your faithfulness will be my shield and rampart.

 I will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand, but it will not come near me. I will only observe with my eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If I make You my dwelling, you LORD, who is my refuge, then no harm will befall me, no disaster will come near my tent. Oh Lord, You alone I worship. You alone ask for help. Protect me and my family throughout the night. Amen
