Prayer for Peaceful Rest

Faithful Father, thank you that your work is perfect, your ways are just, you are a God of faithfulness.

As I lay down to sleep, I entrust myself into your care. I ask that you bring peace to my mind, rest to my body and restoration to my spirit. You are able to do far more abundantly than all that I ask or imagine, according to your power at work within me. To you be glory throughout all generations, forever and ever.

~ Amen
