I love to greet the morning and the activities of the day;
but when the day is over, I find this good to pray:

Thank you for the nighttime; thank you for blessed sleep.
I cast any cares upon you, Lord, for your promises you’ll keep.

P. A. Oltrogge

“…casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

“The Lord will perfect that which concerns me….” Psalm 138:8 KJV

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” words of Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30

“In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for Thou alone, O Lord, dost make me to dwell in safety.” Psalm 4:8

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.  It is vain for you to rise early, to retire late, to eat the bread of anxious labors–for He gives (blessings) to His beloved even in his sleep.”  Psalm 127:1-2 AMP
