Dear God, I thank You tonight for the good day and for the special way You take care of me all the time. Thank You for the fun times outside and the quiet times inside, and for helping me learn new things every day. Thank You for creating me special, exactly the way You wanted. Thank You for protecting me throughout the day. Forgive me for the wrong things I did. Thank You for loving me even when I disobey or try to do things my way. Help me to always choose Your way, God, because it’s always best. I pray for all the people who don’t know You, and that they will come to understand your love for them, too.

Bless my family and thank You for good times together and apart. Bless my friends and those I love, including my grandparents, my aunts and uncles and cousins. Thank You for my home and a place to sleep and good food to eat. Help me to rest well, give me peaceful dreams, and send Your angels around my home to protect me throughout the night. Teach me to trust You and to love You more and more. You are good; You are great; and You are faithful, God. And I love You. Good night. In Jesus’s precious name, Amen.
