18 Short Bedtime Prayers for Kids

Matthew 19:14 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Jesus loved children. He mentions here that the citizens of the kingdom of heaven are those like children. He mentions again that men need to born again of the spirit to be eligible for heaven.

Children need to be raised in God so they never depart from his word. Make praying for your children a daily habit. Pray for their future, pray for their school, and pray for their health. Keep these bedtime prayers for kids in handy.

Bedtime is a daily routine for kids. After homework and shower time kids need rest. They spend most of the day playing around which means they are mostly exhausted at night. Do not let them fall asleep before prayer time.

Let your kids get used to the habit of saying a prayer before bed every night. You can teach them these prayers and in time they will be able to pray themselves. They should learn how to ask God for anything. When they are facing difficulties in school they should be able to pray about it. Plan a prayer for each day of the week for them and let them grow spiritually.

Kids bedtime prayer for family

Praying with your children teaches them that there is a whole world out there besides the home. It helps them realize that they need to care for others in society as well as themselves. Most importantly it makes them know that there is a God who made them and is watching over them each step of their lives (Isaiah 41:10).

Let them get to the point where they pray by themselves even without you. God wants this from us. Teach them the way to go so they won’t depart from it when they are alone (Proverbs 22:6).
