As a pastor, I often encourage my congregation to set aside time for evening devotion and prayer. In the quiet moments before sleep, we have a profound opportunity to connect with God, bringing our joys and challenges of the day before Him. When we take this time for divine fellowship amidst our busy modern lives, we tap into a deep peace that resonates overnight and into the next day.
In this blog, I’d like to provide a resource for meaningful Catholic night prayers. My goal is twofold: first, to speak to the immense power and purpose of evening prayer; second, to equip you with over 100 evening prayers, organized by theme, that you can incorporate into your own habit of nightly connection with the Divine.
Why Pray Before Bed? The Purpose Behind Evening Devotion
There are many motivations behind taking time to pray as the day winds down. First, evening prayer gives us a chance to process the events of our day with the Holy Spirit. We invite God into the happenings that filled our daylight hours – decisions we made, challenges we faced, people we encountered. We present all of this before His throne of grace, trusting Him to work within our actions, relationships and circumstances to align them with His purposes. As we review the day with God, we relinquish control over those things we cannot change, accepting peace for what lies behind us and courage for what awaits in the future.
Second, bedtime prayer prepares our hearts for rest and our subconscious minds for wisdom overnight. As we quiet our bodies before the Lord, releasing the tensions we carried throughout the day, we make space for God to minister to our souls. We allow Him to shift our hearts from the worries of earthly life to the truths of eternity, our identity and security resting solely in Him instead of our accomplishments or failures of the present day. This act of letting go invites God’s supernatural peace to saturate our innermost beings in the stillness. Furthermore, as we fall asleep meditating on the goodness of God’s Word and presence, our subconscious minds marinate in that truth all night long.
Many devoted prayer warriors can attest to waking up the next morning with fresh inspiration or clarity on issues that troubled them the night before. Allowing our last waking thoughts to dwell on the Almighty and His promises gives God full access to speak to our hearts as we sleep.
Finally, ending the day in communion with God realigns our outlook and our priorities for the next day ahead. When we surrender control to His capable hands at night, we begin our next day rested in the assurance that He orchestrates all things for our good. The worries that so often overwhelm us stem from attempts at self-sufficiency, forgetting that achieving God’s perfect will for our lives depends not on our feeble efforts but on willing obedience to His Spirit’s nudges one moment at a time.
As we surrender our need to micromanage each day and instead prepare our hearts to follow Him in childlike trust, we walk into the next sunrise free from anxiety and full of boldness to walk in our divine purpose.
In all these ways and more, establishing nightly connection with God profoundly impacts our ability to live out joy and peace as beloved children of the Most High God. We distill the teachings of Christ and promises of Scripture deep into our spirits when we commune with God last thing at night and first thing each morning. Let’s now explore some of the most common and powerful evening prayers.
4 Popular Bedtime Prayers & Night Devotionals
Certain Catholic prayers have special significance at night, when we seek to quiet our souls after the stimuli of the full day. Though personal, extemporaneous prayer always carries value, here are some traditional nightly prayers I often recommend for their power and comfort.
- Examen: Perhaps the most quintessential evening prayer format comes in the Daily Examen, the practice of reviewing your day with God developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola. This moment of contemplation invites you to discern God’s presence throughout your day and become aware of His spirit in your life. You recount the day’s events with gratitude, humility, and patience. The Examen provides a slow yet introspective way to release the day into God’s hands before sleep.
- Compline or Night Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours: Compline comprises the official prayers of the Liturgy of the Hours designated for night. Also called Night Prayer, this devotion provides Psalms, scriptures, and petitions intended to allow the soul to rest in God’s protection through the night. Many find the scripted prayers lead naturally into a time of intimate conversation with God before sleep.
- Prayer of St. Augustine: One beloved bedtime prayer since medieval Christian times comes from St. Augustine. His petition captures the vulnerability and dependence we feel on God as we surrender this waking day, trusting Him to guard our rest and raise us to new life in the morning. Its powerful imagery and cry for protection under the wings of angels make St. Augustine’s prayer a meaningful expression for Compline.
- Prayer of St. Thomas More: St. Thomas More, a Renaissance scholar and philosopher, likewise authored an oft-quoted night prayer for Catholic tradition. His supplication puts beautiful words around our longing for sin to take no hold over us as we sleep, but for God’s illumination to guide us into the dawn with a redeemed conscience and a clean heart. This 14-line entreaty makes a stirring close to the day.
Now that we have covered why night prayer matters, along with some notable examples to start incorporating, below you will discover over 100 evening prayers to enrich and expand your bedtime devotion.
