Prayer before sleep



Don't forget the importance of prayer before sleeping. You will know yourself, you will purify your soul. Think how God would judge you if you died tonight.



  1. Ask God for the grace to always know and hate sin. Put yourself in the presence of God and thank him for the benefits he has given you today. In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
  2. Think about all the shortcomings committed that day with thoughts, words, deeds and omissions, paying particular attention to the shortcoming to which you are most prone.
  3. Truly repent of all faults; ask God for forgiveness and try to put yourself in that state you would like to be in at the time of death.
  4. Prayer of thanksgiving to God for life and all we have.

 



Prayer before sleep: Act of pain

My God, I repent and I regret with all my heart my sins, because by sinning I deserved your punishments and much more because I offended you, infinitely good and worthy of being loved above all. I propose with your holy help never again to be offended and to flee from the next opportunities of sin. Lord, mercy, forgive me. Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory to the Father, Creed, Angel of God, eternal rest.

 

Visit o father

Visit, O Father, our home and depart from the snares of the enemy; may the holy angels come to keep us in peace, and your blessing remain with us always. For Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

I love you

I adore you, my God, and I love you with all my heart. I thank you for making me a Christian and preserving me on this day. Forgive me for the evil committed today and, if I have done good, accept it. Keep me at rest and free me from danger. May your grace always be with me and with all my loved ones. Amen.

 

At the end of the day

At the end of the day, O Supreme Creator, look upon us at rest with the love of the Father. Give health to the body and fervor to the spirit, your light illuminates the shadows of the night. In the sleep of your limbs your heart remains faithful, and at dawn you sing your praises. Honor the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, the triune and unique God through the ages and glory. Amen.


 

Prayer before sleep: purgatory

Eternal and almighty Lord, for this very precious blood that your divine Son shed throughout his passion, and above all with his hands and feet on the tree of the cross, freeing the souls in purgatory from their pains and, before the others, those for whom I have the greatest obligation to pray to you, or who deserve our best efforts for having professed a particular devotion to the sorrows of Jesus and of his Mother Mary, the most afflicted in life.


Holy Father, my Creator and my God, in whose arms I am about to take the rest of this night, I cannot close my eyes to sleep without first commending my loved ones who are suffering in Purgatory. My sweet Father, remember that these souls are your daughters, who have loved you and love you above all, and among the sufferings of purgatory, more than the release from the pains, they sigh that they can finally see and that they are forever united with you.

Please open your paternal arms to them, call them. In atonement for their sins, accept from me the offer of all the infinite merits of the life, passion and death of Jesus. Tonight I intend to repeat this precious offering with every beat of my heart. 

O Queen of the universe, most holy Virgin Mary, whose admirable power also extends to Purgatory, I pray that among the Souls who feel the sweet effects of your motherly protection, there will also be those of my loved ones. I recommend you for this sword of pain that pierced your soul under the cross of Jesus dying.

The prayer before sleeping to the eternal father

A poor deceased Clarissa appeared to her abbess who prayed for her and said: "I have gone straight to heaven because, having said this prayer every evening, I have paid all my debts and I have been preserved from purgatory ": Eternal Father, for the hands of mourned Mary, I offer you the Sacred Heart of Jesus with all its love, with all its sufferings and with all its merits: expiate the sins that I have committed today and throughout throughout my past life; Glory to the Father for purifying the good that I have done badly today and throughout my past life; Glory to the Father for compensating for the good that I have neglected to do today and throughout my past life. De Profundis, glory to the father.
