Bedtime Prayer for Peace and Joy

Lord Jesus, this has been a long day for us. A lot of things happened and we were consumed with several tasks that led us to feel various emotions. Forgive us Lord, if there had been times that we acted negatively towards others. If we had been insensitive of Your leading and guidance that lead us to committing sins.

You know our hearts, Lord. We humbly come before You and ask for mercy to flow in us. We acknowledge that apart from You we are nothing. We have no good things in us.

Thank You Lord for sustaining us all throughout this day. Regardless of failures, we have learned so much about ourselves and most importantly about You. Thank You for teaching us valuable lessons through circumstances and people. You are the best teacher, Lord. You have used each and every moment to reveal more of Yourself.

Even in subtle ways, You never fail to show us who You are. You are our way maker, miracle worker and promise keeper. We are always grateful for Your patience in checking and searching our hearts. Thank You for loving us unconditionally.

We pray that tonight will bring us inner peace and joy in Your presence. We surrender all our cares before You. Work mightily in our lives so that as we prepare for tomorrow, we will be more equipped to do Your will. Restore our weak bodies. Do not allow physical limitations to become another excuse for not obeying Your commands.

Grant us good health so that we may work more vigorously. Fill us with joy so that even when we are confronted with challenging tasks, we will not complain but remain firm, trusting You all the way.

Thank You, Lord for tonight. Give us a good night’s sleep. This we ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
