Bedtime Prayers for Children

bedtime prayer for a child to say before sleep


You know me.
You understand my thoughts.
You protect me when I'm scared.
You encourage me when I'm nervous
You comfort me when I'm hurt.
You jump with me when I'm excited.
You smile with me when I'm happy.
You watch over me as I sleep.

Thank you.

a night time prayer for a child

a prayer suitable for a child when feeling anxious, troubled or sad

Dear God,
I've felt a bit sad today.
Sometimes people say things that upset me.
Sometimes I feel lonely at school.
Sometimes I feel misunderstood by my mum and dad.
Sometimes my feelings are all mixed up inside.
Please make me feel better.
Please make me sleep with good dreams.
Please make a happier day tomorrow.
