Prayer for Fearless Sleep

Bible Verses and Scripture for Night Protection

When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. – Proverbs 3:24

This Bible verse is a reminder that we are never alone. God is always with us, even when we are at our most vulnerable. When we lie down to sleep, we are putting ourselves in a position of rest and trust.

We are essentially saying to God, “I am tired and I need your help.” And God always comes through for us. He protects us from our fears and from the harm that could come to us in the night. If you wanted to, you could offer God a prayer for nightly protection.

He gives us sweet dreams and peaceful sleep. So when you lie down tonight, remember that God is with you. Close your eyes and rest easy knowing that you are safe in His care.

I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me. – Psalm 3:5

Christians know that God is watching over us, keeping us safe from harm during both day and night. Christians can offer prayers for bedtime but He watches over us whether we ask Him to or not.

As we go through life, let us remember the words of Psalm 3:5 and take comfort in knowing that the LORD is our faithful protector.
