Powerful Bedtime prayer for Your Children (with Bible Verses)

Whether you started the day with prayer or not, bedtime prayer for your children is a must to keep the devil at arm’s length.

There are numerous plans from your enemies and the devil to take away your happiness.

Most of these unseen forces are laboring day and night to hurt those that are dear to you.

And this is why, after your routine bedtime session with your baby, you need to pray for God’s protection.

Tonight, you have made the right decision to pray for your kids.

We must thank God for the protection of your baby all through the day.

Most times, we often don’t seem to understand the magnitude of God’s protection.

Look through the internet and see a lot of sad, sorrowful news of disappointment, death, sicknesses, and sorrow.

If God has been faithful to your home, We must thank Him for his endless love.

He has protected your children since they were born.

As they lay down to sleep, they will wake up refreshed tomorrow.

This short bedtime prayer will seek God’s continued guidance and protection, whether crying or restless or in sickness or good health.

I have put together this bedtime prayer for kids and toddlers to guide you.

Bedtime prayer for Your Children with Bible Verses

Let’s give thanks for his goodness.

We will start our prayers by thanking the Lord for all he has done.

All through the day, God has protected our children.

He has protected them as they went out in the morning and returned them safely.

Or, he has kept your kids safe as they played around in the vicinity.

About five days ago, I met a young girl with hot water burns.

She was just six years old.

While running and playing, she mistakenly bumped on hot water.

She had multiple burns injuries in her back, neck, and buttocks.

But God has protected your kids from any harm or pain.

He has kept them happy all through the day.

Therefore, we must give thanks for God’s, unfailing love.

The scripture says,

give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Lord, I return all praises to your name.

He watches over your children.

There is no reason to feel afraid.

God knows the devil moves aimlessly, seeking to kill and destroy.

He understands every move of the devil.

So, he is always one step ahead of all his plans.

God watches over your affairs and that of your children.

He has promised us protection in anything we do.

As your kids go back to sleep, we will ask God to watch over them.

Please watch over them as they sleep.

Let them have a sweet sleep devoid of evil dreams and torture.

Deliver and protect them from all vicious attacks at night.
