Prayer of Protection For When You're Falling Asleep
Let’s face it — life is scary. We want to keep our loved ones, children, friends, and even ourselves safe throughout the day, emotionally and physically. It’s a natural instinct to protect the things we love most in our life, and lucky for us that we have a little extra help to make sure that they stay safeguarded. Our Lord is always watching out for us, even when we may not realize it or think about him during the busiest moments in our days. But, when we want that extra feeling of safety or crave a little satisfaction knowing that God is listening, there are prayers for protection to read, say, and meditate on.
Never underestimate what the power of prayer can do in any situation. God knows exactly what we need, when we need it. So whether you’re calling for protection on yourself, your home, your children, or simply the world, know that the Lord is listening, and he will answer when the time is right.
I lay down to sleep, cradled in Your loving hands.
I breathe out all my cares, I breathe in Your grace.
I am safe in Your care, sheltered, held, carried.
I lay down to sleep.
