Did you know that evening prayers are the right way to end your day? Wake up with God, but also end your day with God in prayer. He loves talking with his children, day or night. Evening prayers are very intimate with God. You have had a whole day to think about His mercy, grace and blessings that He bestows on you. And at times, you’ve struggled with stress and heartache. Before closing your eyes to sleep at night, give thanks to the One who loves you and knows you best.
If the need for prayer is what you are seeking most, may it be gratitude, thankfulness, or the dawn of a new day, let us pray for you at the holiest place on earth, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. We have faith that sending your prayer to the place where our Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for us will help your request be granted! It is our honor and privilege to be a prayer warrior for you, and to ask the Lord to watch over you, protect you, and keep you, always. Please submit your prayer request today.

Prayer for the End of the Day
Heavenly Father, I adore You and thank you for all the graces You have given me this day. I offer You my sleep, my dreams, and all the moments of this night. I pray that you give me rest so that I may wake to Your holy face. I put myself within your sacred care and under the mantle of your Holy Spirit today and always. Please pour out Your blessings upon me, for You are the answer to all things, and You alone. Amen.
Prayer for the Lord’s Protection Through the Night
Lord, please continue to pour out your gracious protection to my family and I this night. Defend us from all dangers, and from the fear of all things, that we may enjoy such refreshing sleep as may fit us for the duties of the coming day, and the days that follow. I ask that you grant me grace to live in such a state that I may never be afraid to die so that, living and dying, I may be Yours.
Prayer for Peace After a Hard Day
Father, today was a very tough day for me. I am stressed out about bills, finances, work, family issues, and the state of the world that surrounds me. I feel like I am at the end of my rope, and I don’t know how to hold on. Life is out of control right now, and I’m at a loss at to how to face another day. Lord, I need Your stability right now. You are my Rock! Please refresh my Spirit with song, peace, and reassurance. Refresh my mind with Your Word! Refresh my soul within this prayer, Lord! I know You are in control, and that You will 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. Amen.
Prayer for Anticipation In the Coming Days
I am ready to fall asleep and arise tomorrow morning renewed, but I can’t help but think about the anticipation and anguish I have over life as a whole. But in the midst of my worry, I find myself thinking 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, as He waits for me to join Him. I am reminded that I need not worry about tomorrow, or what is to come. For You alone are my protector, and my everything. Thank You for loving me so much, Father!
Prayer for the Strength of a New Day & A New Dawn
Lord, I am weak right now. There is so much going on in my life physically and emotionally that I feel like 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. I pray that You will watch over me as I dream peacefully, and bring pleasant thoughts into my mind. I ask these things in Your precious name. Amen.
Prayer of Thankfulness at the End of the Day
Today was a wonderful day! Thank You for allowing me to be Your vessel in spreading Your love to others through my actions today; in public, at work, and even in my own home. I was the salt and the light to many people today. I know there will always be unbelievers, but there are also lost people on very fertile soil. Lord, I pray that the seeds I planted today were on fertile soil. I ask that you water these seeds and reap a bountiful harvest. Thank you for this day! Amen.
