Short Prayers for Each Night | Prayer for Sleep Through The Night

One of the ways that Catholic Christians thank God is through prayer, a way to communicate and express their feelings of gratitude directly with the creator. There are prayers for each situation and event, for each feeling that arises due to the circumstances of life in the faithful believers. Just as there are prayers to ask for protection, such as Psalm 91, there are prayers to thank the health, ask for the sick, prayers for the family, prayers to end the day, and prepare to rest. 

In Western culture, there are beliefs that at night is when evils abound. Evil spirits seek their victims in the shelter of the night when souls in distress wander, seeking an uncertain purpose, and that is when divine protection is really necessary and well received. Here we bring some prayers for the night, prayers of protection to say goodbye to the day, and look forward to the next challenges it may bring.

Beyond the prayers based on the rosary, there is an infinity of sacred words suitable to demonstrate our devotion to God. Prayer is an important part of the life of every Christian. What better way to end the day than thanking God for the days lived, the present, and for a future full of his blessings? Therefore, here we present you with various prayers that will serve as guides for you to speak with our Lord appropriately.

Night Prayer

“JESUS CHRIST MY LORD: FOR THIS DAY FULL OF BLESSINGS WE GIVE YOU THANKS. I BEG YOU TO LEAVE ME WITHOUT SIN AND I GRANT YOU MY DREAM AND ALL THE HOURS OF THIS NIGHT. IN THIS WAY I APPROACH UNDER YOUR MOST HOLY SIDE AND UNDER THE MANTLE OF MY MOTHER, THE VIRGIN MARY. HELP ME AND PROTECT ME THE HOLY ANGELS AND REACH OUT TO ME YOUR BLESSING. AMEN.”

In this prayer, you are grateful for one more day, regardless of the challenges that have passed in it. The stumbles and victories are “one more day,” and that is the important thing. In the following prayer, trust is offered, putting the protection of man in his hands.

Well, ask for the blessing of the holy spirit and with it a safe rest without worries.
To sleep under divine protection, be at peace with yourself and with God; that is the mission of prayers.

– Guardian Angel Prayer

“ANGEL OF MY GUARDIAN OF MY TENDER COMPANY

DO NOT LEAVE ME AT NIGHT OR DURING THE DAY

DON’T LEAVE ME ALONE BECAUSE I WOULD GET LOST

UNTIL I PUT MYSELF IN FRONT

OF JESUS JOSEPH AND THE HOLY MARY

WITH GOD I GO TO BED, WITH GOD I GET UP

MAY THE BLESSED VIRGIN COVER ME WITH HER MANTLE ”

A prayer used by the smallest of the house. It is a variation of the Guardian Angel Prayer. It is used in different places in Latin America, such as the Venezuelan Andes, where at the end it is accompanied by a peculiar “Blessing” and answered by the elderly relatives with a “God bless you.”

Different card styles

The guardian angel’s mission is to guide men and protect them during their life. The defender on earth is a “Guardian Angel.”

 Prayer of a happy day

DEAR LORD, TODAY I COME TO YOU TO THANK YOU, FOR HAVING COVERED MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES WITH YOUR MANTLE. GIVE US SHELTER DURING THIS NIGHT AND THE FOLLOWING, AND FILL OUR SOULS WITH ENERGY AND PREPARE US TO FACE THE ADVERSITIES OF A NEW DAY.

 Prayer of a son

THANK YOU MY LORD. I WANT TO GIVE YOU MY HEART FULL OF GRATITUDE, FOR A WONDERFUL DAY, ESPECIALLY FOR GIVING ME A MOTHER WHO WITH HER UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FILLS MY LIFE WITH JOY AND JOY, AND WHO WITH HER FIRM BUT SWEET HAND HAS MADE ME THE MAN I AM.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR YEARS BY MY SIDE, FOR BEING YOUR GIFT HERE ON EARTH. BUT I ALSO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO NEED HELP, FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE THAT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE THAT FILLS THEM WITH JOY. I ALSO PRAY FOR THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER WITH US AND WHO ARE ALREADY RESTING AND ARE WITH YOU IN HEAVEN, SO THAT ONE DAY WE CAN MEET. THAT WHILE WE REST AND DREAM OF THAT DAY, WE WANT TO HUG EACH OTHER AWAKE.

 At the end of the day

“YOU, MY LORD, WHO LIGHT UP THE NIGHT AND MAKE THE LIGHT TO DAWN AGAIN AFTER DARKNESS. MAKE THIS NIGHT THAT IS JUST BEGINNING, FREE OF ALL GUILT AND THAT, AT THE DAWN OF THE NEW DAY, WE CAN BE TOGETHER AGAIN IN YOUR PRESENCE TO THANK YOU AGAIN. THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, YOUR SON, WHO LIVES AND REIGNS WITH YOU IN UNITY WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, FOREVER AND EVER. AMEN.”

  Prayer for sleep through the night

Prayers to Saint Jude Thaddeus

“ANOTHER DAY THAT ENDS,
I ASK YOU LORD JESUS CHRIST:
THAT YOU OFFER YOUR PROTECTION UNDER YOUR LOVE,
WITH YOUR GREAT MERCY.
MAY OUR HEARTS ALWAYS BE BY YOUR SIDE
AND MAY YOUR PRESENCE BE PRESENT DURING SLEEP.

GIVE US YOUR STRENGTH TO OBTAIN MORE ENERGY
AND CLARIFY OURS AS WE WALK
ON ANOTHER NIGHT.
OH MY ALMIGHTY GOD,
HEAR OUR PRAYERS AND SUPPLICATIONS,
RENEW OUR BODIES WITH HEALTH
AND PROTECT US AS EVERY NIGHT.

OH, JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD, MAKE THIS A PEACEFUL NIGHT,
AND GRANT US AT THE END OF OUR LIFE, A HOLY DEATH.

AMEN.”

  Psalm 121

“MY HELP COMES FROM THE LORD, WHO CREATED HEAVEN AND EARTH

IT DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO TAKE A WRONG STEP, IT DOES NOT REST YOUR PROTECTOR;

NEVER YIELDS THE DREAM OR FALSIFIES THE GUARDIAN OF ISRAEL

THE LORD IS YOUR PROTECTION AND YOUR GUIDE, THE LORD IS AT YOUR RIGHT HAND

DURING THE DAY YOU WILL NOT BE HURT BY THE SUN, NOR THE MOON AT NIGHT

THE ALMIGHTY WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU FROM ALL EVIL, THE GUARDIAN OF YOUR SOUL

HE KEEPS YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE AND RETURN NOW AND FOREVER. “

 

Psalm 121 tells us that God is present at all times. It implies that earthly protections can fail at any moment, but that divine blessing is protection that never falsifies against any evil and only asks its protector for faith and devotion.

 

Short sentences to go to sleep

We can find a great variety of prayers; everything will depend on the tastes of whoever wishes to recite it and ask for their protection and that of their family. There is the belief that the battle of good and evil by day is asymmetrical, and the balance is on our side, but at night the balance changes, and therefore it is necessary to establish a link to have protection.

In some cultures, it is thought that nightmares are remnants of spirits that want to take the energy of those who rest and that pleasant dreams are instead small visualizations of their protectors. In conclusion, through a few simple words, prayer allows us to connect with the divinity of the Lord without the need to have a great knowledge of Catholic doctrine itself. Therefore, these prayers will allow divine communication to be favorably fostered.
