Even if im very tired for the whole day activities i will never forget to pray before i sleep. its really important that you will always communicate to God for he will defend you and keep you safe to all dangerous accident that might happen everyday. he will also keep you safe while you're sleeping. how about you? do you do the same or just go to sleep right away?

It's good to hear that you are praying. A lot of people have neglected the power of it but yes, prayer is power. We have a daily devotional every morning, because my sleep time is in the morning. We share a few prayer requests and read a few verses in the bible for some words of encouragement and inspiration.

Honestly sometimes I forget to. But sometimes when I pray it is a short thank you for all the day's blessings. And I remember to pray more when I tuck my child in bed and watch her sleep !

Hello cupcyke, good day to you. I agree with you cupycyke! Well, praying is one way of communicating to God and it is one of the most popular way to talk to him. Here in our country even they are in the worst part or situation of their life or even they have a very difficult trials or problem, they do not still loss hope and they continue prayimg to God because of the reason God really have the ability and power to guide those people who are walking in the wrong way. It is very important to pray everynight because it is one way of communicating to him, then at night is the right time to talk to him because we are no longer busy to our work and with that reason, we can tak to GOD for a long time and we can be able to ask for his forgiveness, guide and protect us from danger. Honestly speaking since i was a child and in the time that my eyes are openned to our GOD, i already start believed with him and everynight I always pray to her to ask for the things that i need for the next day and ask forgiveness together for the next coming day. Then i also pray that he will give me good health for my everyday activity and i also do pray with him for great new day again that i will face in the next day. Well, until now that i was 18 years old and studying in the year of third year college, I do still believe with him and i always pray at night together in the morning to say thank you for keeping me alive. As i remember in school when we have a test an I am not sure with my answer in my test paper, i also still pray that he will help me with my test. I can say by communicating to God and continue it we will no longer worried about something because GOD is always there to give help. Well, that's all the end of my response in your discussion! I hope i give a good and interesting response! Happy posting and happy earning to everyone of this site mylot. Good luck to our earning career!

I do pray before I go to sleep. I always say my gratitude on the blessings that I had the whole day. I also seek for advice on what to do the following day. Also, I tell a story on what happened during my day.Then, I try not to miss a night before going to bed to say my prayers.

Of course I also always pray before going to sleep. Not only before sleep, but wake up to sleep, before and after meals. I believe that God never sleeps. God will always know everything that we do. I agree with your opinion that we need to make communication with God. Praying is a way to make our communication with God. Ask forgiveness for any mistakes that we do and to say thanks for the blessings we receive. We must believe that God always hears our prayers.

I do that ever since i was a child. I was trained to do so but i will admit lately i seldom do it like i used to. I know its not good and i admit its wrong. It is really indeed very important to pray and thanks God for all the things He give to us before sleeping and also when waking up in the morning. It is the only thing we can do to appreciate all the good things He did for us. For always guiding us and keeping us safe and all the other things most importantly for giving us life.

Yup, praying before sleeping became a habit to me. I make sure to thank God for all the blessings he had given me for that day.

Hello cupcyke!!! Well I do pray every night before I sleep. And the praying is some lines from Buddhism. When I was small, I had made it hard in mind thought it was very very difficult and it was said that reading these lines before sleeping prevents you from nightmares. So I read this lines in heart every night, before I actually sleep. I think this is the only time I pray hehe.... Also when I pray its like for a night. I pray that nothing bad happens in the nighttime. But other time, when I seem have problem, or anyhow my heart started beating fast, I remember the name of god. But no any specific routine for anyday... Keep mylotting....

I have to admit I sometimes forget to pray before going to sleep. These are the times when I get home from work really really late and I am stressed and tired. All I wanted to do was go to sleep immediately. But other than times like these which are now rare, I do pray before going to sleep. I thank Him for the blessings and I share my day and some stories with Him. Afterwards, I feel lighter. Then I go to sleep.

Yeah, you're right. I also do not go out of the house or go anywhere else without praying, I never sleep unless I pray, and I have taught my child to be the same too. Even before meals. And believe me, for almost 11 years we have not taken any tablet of medicine coz only through prayers that our sickness, diseases, or illnesses were healed. I was once a cancer patient and only through prayer that I was healed. Indeed prayer is a great armor in our life.

I pray to God before I go to sleep every night to thank him for all the care and blessings with the family. I pray for the healing of sickness of anyone in the family or relatives and friends. I also pray for a blessed safe night and a better next day. I don't forget to pray to God before I sleep for the eternal repose of the souls of my loved ones and friends, for the forgiveness of their sins. I also offer prayers to the poor souls of furgatory.

Sometimes I pray before I go to sleep:) But most of the time I forgot to pray:( But its really a good practice to pray before sleeping and not just before sleeping but also after you wake up and face a new day!

I always pray before going to sleep, I also make a sign of the cross every time I went to bed. Bed time is incomplete without praying and make sign of the cross. Basically, that's what I'd learned from childhood, to pray always before going to sleep to ask for guidance and blessing for a peaceful night and sleep.
