Evening Prayers

Woman Praying

Ending your day with prayer is a wonderful way to let go of stress and find peace before falling asleep while also connecting to God. Wake up with God, but also end your day with God in prayer. Prayer allows you to reflect on your day and express gratitude and appreciation for your life.

Those of us who lead busy lives often find that when the day is over, we’re exhausted. Because of this fatigue, it can be hard for us to remember our nightly prayers. However, it’s through praying every night that you have the chance to feel loved and protected by God while you sleep. On this page you’ll find various powerful evening prayers for you and family to keep you close and safe.
