Orthodox Prayers before Bedtime

In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit:

O God, be merciful to me a sinner. (3 times)

O Lord our God, forgive all the sins I have committed this day in word, deed and thought, for Thou art good and lovest mankind. Grant me peaceful and undisturbed sleep. Send Thy Guardian Angel to protect and keep me from all harm. For Thou art the Guardian of our souls and bodies, and to Thee do we ascribe glory, to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

O Lord our God, in Whom we believe and upon Whose Name we call more than any other name, grant relief to our souls and bodies as we go to sleep. Keep us from every fantasy and dark pleasure. Halt the rushing of passions and quench the fiery arousals of the flesh. Grant unto us to live chastely in thought, word, and deed. Having embraced a virtuous life, may we not fall away from Thy promised blessings, for blessed art Thou forever. Amen.

(You may include any personal prayers and specific requests here.)

Through the prayers of Thy Most-Holy Mother and of all the saints, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.

Prayer upon lying down to go to sleep:

Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my soul and body. Do Thou Thyself bless me, have mercy upon me, and grant me life eternal. Amen.
