8 Evening Prayers To End Your Day

Corrie ten Boom once said: “Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees.”

Evening prayers are the right way to end your day! Wake up with God, but also end your day with God in prayer. Evening prayers to me seem to be more intimate with God. You have had a whole day to think about His mercy, grace and blessings that He bestows on you. Here are 8 prayers that you can pray at the end of your day!

Thank You!

Dear Wonderful Father,

You have granted me another day of life to be your light on this world. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy your sunshine, my family, Your Word and Jesus today! It truly was another blessed day because You were in it, Lord. I am so thankful for all of the blessings You bestowed upon me today. I love You! Amen

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!” (Psalm 118:24)

Tomorrow?

Father in Heaven,

If tomorrow doesn’t come, I want You to know how much I love You! You have guided my steps today and brought me safely home to my family. You are truly my best friend! You sing over me daily. (Zephaniah 3:17) You rejoice over me with gladness. (Zephaniah 3:17) I am not worthy of Your affections, Father, and You don’t even consider the thought of Heaven without me. Oh Lord, You really are a great God! Your love is unending and it is my portion daily! Thank you Father! I love You! Amen

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty One who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness; He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Uncertainties

Dear Lord,

The future for me is so obscure. I have no idea where my life is headed. All I know is where I have been today and I thank You for leading me through this day. Lord, will I ever get married? Will I find the perfect job? Will I ever own my own home? Where can I fit in at my church? Lord, there are so many questions that only You know the answers to. Father, as I end this day I give them to You and ask that You do as You see fit. I am at Your mercy always, loving Father. Thank You for this day and I pray that if tomorrow comes that answers may come with it. I love You! Amen

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4)

Salt And Light

Glorious One,

Today was a wonderful day! Thank you for allowing me to be your vessel in spreading Your love to others through my actions today. I was the salt and the light to many people today. I know there will always be nay sayers but there are also lost people on very fertile soil. Lord, I pray that the seeds I planted today were on fertile soil. I pray, Lord, that you will water these seeds and reap a bountiful harvest. Thank you for this day! I love You! Amen

“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

Rough Day

Lord above,

Today was a rough one. I am late on paying bills. I need new tires on my car and that caused me to almost have an accident. I feel like I am in a dead-end job. My spouse and kids are driving me crazy! Life is out of control right now, Father! Lord, I need Your stability right now. You are my Rock! Refresh my Spirit with song! Refresh my mind with Your Word! Refresh my soul within this prayer, Lord! I am at Your mercy and I know You are with me always. I pray, Lord, that You make my paths straight and iron out all of these trials. What can I learn from these trials? I place these all in Your hands. I love You, Father! Amen

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:6)

I praise Your Name and the Name of Jesus Christ! I love You! Amen

I praise Your Name and the Name of Jesus Christ! I love You! Amen

Praises

Oh Lord,

You led me safely through this day! May Your Name be praised always! Lord, I praise You for so many things! I praise You for my family, job, car, house, friends, church, Bible, prayer time, and most importantly, Jesus! Lord, thank You for Jesus! He bled and died for me! He loved me enough to embrace those nail-scarred hands and feet! Oh, how He loves me! I praise Your Name and the Name of Jesus Christ! I love You! Amen

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

Strength

Father,

I am weak right now. There is so much going on in my life physically and emotionally that I am at my breaking point! I need Your strength to make it through these times. Father, I pray that tonight while I sleep You will refresh my mind and strength for tomorrow morning. Lord, I pray that You will watch over me as I sleep and bring pleasant thoughts into my mind as I dream away. Thank You for loving me, Lord! Amen

“You are my strength when I am weak. You are the treasure that I seek. You are my all in all.” (You Are My All In All – Dennis Jernigan)

Anticipation

Father,

Here I am ready to fall asleep and I can’t help but think about what Heaven will be like. I imagine beautiful walkways where the saints talk and sing praises to You! I imagine the room that Jesus has prepared for me! A room prepared by the greatest designer ever! I imagine talking with the people that I love right now and the ones that are already with You! I can’t wait to see the 12 gates surrounding it! I can’t wait to experience Jesus for the first time there! Oh Father, I will be in Your presence! In the presence of Yahweh! You are the biggest reward of all-time! Thank You for loving me so much, Father! Amen

“It had a great, high wall, with twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and on the gates the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel were inscribed.” (Revelation 21:12)

Have to agree with Pastor Jack Wellman, Derek…”seems you are on a roll with prayers lately and these are very important.” And most precious, too!
Usually by sleep-time, I’m too exhausted to pray except to say, “Good-night, Jesus, and thanks for this day!”
I’m going to print these prayers and place on night-stand next to bed. Our wonderful Lord deserves MORE praise from all of us, right, Derek?
(Love Corrie ten Boom’s writings!) Thanks, Derek, for compiling these night-prayers!
Oodles of God’s bountiful blessings for you and your children, Derek!
Always, your sister in Christ Jesus….Patty

Derek,
thank you for this post today, it was a blessing. Evening prayers are most certainly the right way to end your day!
I will keep your prayer points in mind, when I come to the Lord at the end of the day.

I always try to complete my day, by going over the day with the Lord, thanking Him at certain points and also apologizing for any wrong atitudes or anything that I may have said which could have upset someone.
There are times when I want to go to bed earlier than usual, just so that I can give thanks for the day and have ‘discussions’ with the Lord about my day. Invariably I end up falling asleep, before the end of my ‘prayer’, especially if I have had a looong day, full of various activites.

God bless you more as you share with us <

Thank you Carole! I like how you go to bed early to have longer discussions with God. That is a great idea! Bless you!
