Catholic Night Prayers, also known as Bedtime Prayer, are a special way for Catholic individuals to conclude their day with a sense of peace and reflection.

These prayers are a cherished tradition that allows believers to express gratitude for the day’s blessings, seek forgiveness for any shortcomings, and entrust themselves to God’s care as they prepare for sleep.

Rooted in the rich spiritual heritage of the Catholic faith, these nighttime prayers offer comfort, guidance, and a moment of quiet communion with the divine before drifting into the peaceful realm of dreams.

Embracing a sense of humility and faith, Catholic Night Prayers foster a deep connection with God and provide a sacred space for reflection on one’s actions and intentions as they rest in the loving embrace of their faith.

Daily Catholic good night and evening prayers. Now I lay myself down to sleep bedtime prayer with Nunc Dimittis, prayer for strength and protection.

Opening Prayer/Introductory Prayer

V./ Oh God come to our aid,
R./ Oh Lord make haste to help us.

V./ Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,

R./ as it was, in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

Nunc Dimittis

Save us Lord while we are awake, protect us while we sleep, that we may keep watch with Christ and rest tonight with Him in Peace.

(At last, all-powerful Master, You give leave to your servant to go in peace, according to your promise.

For my eyes have seen your salvation, Which you have prepared for all nations, The light to enlighten the Gentiles, And give glory to Israel, your people.)

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was, in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.


Into your hands Oh Lord I commend my Spirit. Lord Jesus receive my soul, may the Blessed Saint Mary, Saint Joseph and all the Saints, pray for us to God that we may be preserved this night from sins and all evil. Amen.

Lord bless us and keep us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life, may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I give you my heart and my soul.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, Assist me in my last agony.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, may I breathe out my soul in peace with you. Amen

Scripture Reading

Ephesians 4:25-28

No more lying, then! Each of you must tell the truth to one another because we are all members together in the body of Christ.

If you become angry, do not let your anger lead you into sin, and do not stay angry all day. Don’t give the Devil a chance.

Those who used to rob must stop robbing and start working, in order to earn an honest living for themselves and to be able to help the poor.

Ephesians 4:25-28

1 Peter 5:8-9

Be calm but vigilant, because your enemy the devil is prowling round like a roaring lion, looking for someone to eat. Stand up to him, strong in faith.

1 Peter 5:8-9


Come to visit us, Lord, this night, So that by your strength we may rise at daybreak, to rejoice in the resurrection of Christ your Son, Who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen

V./ May the Lord grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

R./ Amen.

In your mercy, Lord, dispel the darkness of this night. Let my household sleep in peace that at the dawn of a new day we may, with joy, waken in your name. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
