There isn’t a better way to end your day then with prayer and time in the Word.  The Bible is the reassuring Word of God that will never come back void.

As the sun slowly sets, the nearby mountain peaks gradually disappear into the twilight. Activities for the day are winding down, and residents head back to their apartments or suites. Perhaps you have the bed invitingly turned down and are looking forward to the evening news or a good book.

There are a number of things that may be causing you to lose sleep at night.

It could be work stress. You may think chasing success and looking to your career for fulfillment will leave you feeling energized, but the truth is, it does have its drawbacks. These habits can actually drain you and leave you sleep deprived. While work is a typical and necessary part of a person’s every day, when work becomes your main focus, it can leave you sleep deprived and cause you to lose focus of other things far more important in life. If you’re a workaholic, you’re spending so much time focusing on work productivity that you become stressed. This can get in the way of a good night’s rest.

This precious evening time is perfect for a last-minute reflection on God’s grace. Throughout the Bible, there are verses that comfort, encourage and exhort us in our spiritual life. Meditate on one of these special passages and turn your thoughts to God before you lie down for the night.

Here are TEN Bible verses to read before sleep.

Matthew 11:28

Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). While we aren’t promises a trouble-free life, God does assure us that He will be by our side, no matter what situations we face. If your day was especially stressful, this verse will remind you of Jesus’ presence. Our days may bring us exhaustion, but it does help to know that we are not alone.

Philippians 4:6

The Bible tells us “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6). We all know, this is easier said than done. Sometimes, it’s hard to let go and let God. Anxiety and fear are ruthless and can sabotage our lives if we allow it. This includes are sleeping. If you are chronically fearful or discouraged, you start to believe that you can’t get out of your problems. You also begin second guessing anything good as troubled or flawed. While you will face trials and deal with problems that present discouraging situations, remember that God is there guiding you with open arms, even when you think He’s not. Remembering this alone may be able to help you sleep better.

Psalm 4:8

In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.


Psalm 46:1

The Bible says, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” By definition, a refuge is a safe place. When the Bible describes God as our refuge, it is saying that God is our safe place when we need protection from something. Knowing God is our refuge enables us can help us sleep easier. We need not fear situations that we may encounter tomorrow. There is no situation we will ever face that is out of God’s control, so the best place to be, always, is right with Him.

Proverbs 3:24

When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.


James 1:17

James 1:17 says, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” It’s important that we acknowledge the Creator of all things for everything we receive – true blessings to us. All that we have is a reminder of God’s ever-flowing Grace. Taking time out to read the Bible, pray and meditate before sleep is a great way to acknowledge God and also ensure that we get good rest.

Psalm 3:5

I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the LORD was watching over me.


Psalm 121:1-4

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip—
    he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

Psalm 127:2

It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.


Psalm 94:19

Psalm 94:19 says, “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” What this Psalm tells us is that even in rough or desperate situations, we can be filled with the joy of the Lord. He is our consolation and His Word eases anxiety like nothing else can. God can bring joy to your soul even during times when you’re most anxious by simply knowing that He’s present and trusting in His power. This is certainly a blessed assurance before we lay our head down at night.

It’s important that before we go to sleep, we give thanks to God for all that we’ve experienced. It’s also a good time to ask God for peaceful rest and a fresh start for tomorrow. If you’ve ever found yourself wanting to come up with a great prayer before sleep, but are just too exhausted to find the words, you are not alone. If you are looking for original prayers, it’s not always easy coming up with the right words. Turn to Scripture and call on God to move your words. He is just a prayer away.
