Can't Sleep? In times of great stress and anxiety, prayer makes a difference. Before you retire for the night take time to pray this prayer for peaceful sleep.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your protection today. I ask You to grant me a good night's sleep. Turn Your face towards me and surround me with Your presence. I lay my burdens at Your feet and ask for a peaceful rest tonight.
Holy Spirit help me not to carry the worries and stresses of this world, and not to hold on to any wounds or feelings of hurt from today or from the past. Help me to quiet my mind and turn off all unsettling thoughts. Father, I'm grateful for Your provision in my life. Forgive me for all my sins. Have mercy on me and my family. You are a God who has been faithful throughout the ages. I ask You to give me sweet, peaceful sleep tonight and keep me safe, according to Psalm 4:8; and Psalm 127:2.
Father God, may Your divine peace be found in this place? I invite Your presence here. Only in You, can I find the peace that calms my soul. I ask You to put my mind at ease with everything I'm facing. Open my eyes and help me to see Your hand in every situation. Steady my emotions and calm my troubled heart. I cast all my worries, discouragement, fatigue, weariness, anxiousness, and all my burdens on You. You are the rock of all ages, my stronghold, and my fortress. Help me not to be disheartened or discouraged. Let the joy of the Lord be my strength.
Your word is a lamp unto my feet. And I pray that it guides me so that I may not stumble or fall. Guide me far away from the enemy or any wickedness. May Your Holy Presence be felt continuously in my heart, in my home and wherever I am. Holy Spirit be my comforter. Be my load bearer, renew my strength and see me through this Valley. I look to You and wait on You to renew my strength.
Lord Jesus. I thank You for Your faithfulness. Thank You for being my life. Even in the darkest of times. You are the Good Shepherd that will guide me throughout the day. Lord, I pray for the person who is praying in agreement with me. May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest on their heart and emotions. May they feel Your presence as they sleep? May they find comfort and rest in You. Father, heal those that need healing. Break the chains of bondage off those who need freedom.
Lord GOD regardless of the situation or circumstance Your word reminds me that I am not forsaken, we are never alone. You are the One who knows our way. You divinely ordered each step I am to take to fulfil my destiny. You help me level each mountain I am to overcome. Your word says in John 14:1, do not let Your hearts be troubled trust in God. I received those words. I declare my heart is not troubled because of Jesus.
My heart is not troubled because I have freedom in the Lord. I trust and believe that my future is secure and made certain because of You Lord Jesus. Your love is unending. My faith is sure. My faith is anchored in You, for You have control over all things. Father, I declare Your word in Romans 8:38 that says I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth nor any other creature shall be able to separate me from the love of God. I believe that. And I receive that. Thank You for Your unconditional love. Thank You for Your unending love. A love that has lifted all of my burdens. A love that has removed all of the weight from my shoulders. My hope is within You God. I look to You as the anchor for my soul. I choose to find resting You. I choose faith over fear. You are my refuge and strength, a very present help in the time of uncertainty, and trouble. You are a God who watches over me so that nothing can harm me. May Your Holy presence flood every corner of my emotions. May the blood of Jesus remove every negative thought and every spirit that is not from You God. You are the Good Shepherd, the One who brings down strongholds. The healer of broken hearts. The great deliverer. Lift those who are low in spirit. I stand in agreement with everyone praying with me. We call on Your great goodness and ever abounding grace. May it overflow in my life. Your word says that You will strengthen the weary. Your word says, come unto me all who are heavy laden, and I will give You rest. I choose today to find rest in You and in Your presence. I choose to have faith, instead of fear. I choose to have faith over doubt, to have hope instead of despair. Thank You for being a refuge and strong tower of very present help in times of uncertainty and trouble. Father I proclaim and declare Your word to be true that says, “Fear not for, I am with You. Be not dismayed for, I am Your God. I will strengthen You. I will help You. I will uphold You with my righteous right hand.” I will not fear. I will not be dismayed because You uphold be.
And Lord Jesus Your word says, when I pass through the waters, You will be with me. When I pass through the rivers, they won't overwhelm me. When I walk through the fire, I will not be burned, and the flames will not consume me. Thank You for the assurance.
That is Your word, flood my soul and spirit with Your presence. Refresh those that are weary and heavy burden. I pray that You strengthen those who are weak in their emotions. Help those in turmoil. Comfort the sorrowing. Heal those who are hurting and draw very close to all who were in need of emotional healing.
Lord, Your word says that You heal the broken hearted and that You are near to those who are downcast and depressed. We know that You are on the throne and we know that everything is going to be all right. You've promised to meet every need according to Your glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Please provide according to Your word, the emotional healing needed for anyone praying this prayer and willing to receive.
In the name of Jesus, I declare that depression must go! Pain and sadness must go! Anxiety and worry must go! I pray for comfort and for Your blessings to come down. I pray for the one who feels as though a storm is raging through their life. May Your presence calm the waters? No matter the circumstance, no matter the situation, I pray for Your blessings to cover me. Help me to remember to rely fully on You fixing my eyes on Christ. Jesus. I bless Your Holy name.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen
