Prayers for Children

Compiled from Various Sources

Revised Edition

Morning Prayers.


  Now I awake and see the light;
  Lord, Thou hast kept me through the night.
  To Thee I lift my voice and pray
  That Thou wilt keep me through the day.
  If I should die before 'tis done,
  O God, accept me through Thy Son! Amen.


  The morning bright
  With rosy light
  Has waked me from my sleep;
  Father, I own
  Thy love alone
  Thy little one doth keep.

  All through the day,
  I humbly pray,
  Be Thou my Guard and Guide;
  My sins forgive
  And let me live,
  Blest Jesus, near Thy side. Amen.


  Now I raise me up from sleep,
  I thank the Lord who did me keep,
  All through the night; and to Him pray
  That He may keep me through the day.
  All which for Jesus' sake, I say. Amen.


  O help me, Lord, this day to be
  Thy own dear child and follow Thee;
  And lead me, Savior, by Thy hand
  Until I reach the heavenly land. Amen.


  O Lord, my God, to Thee pray
  While from my bed I rise
  That all I do and all I say
  Be pleasing to Thine eyes. Amen.


  Jesus, Lord, to Thee I pray,
  Guide and guard me through this day.
  As the shepherd tends his sheep.
  Lord, me safe from evil keep.
  Keep my feet from every snare,
  Keep me with Thy watchful care.

  All my little wants supply
  If I live or if I die.
  And when life, O Lord, is past,
  Take me to Thyself at last. Amen.


  In the early morning,
  With the sun's first rays.
  All God's little children
  Thank and pray and praise.

  I, too, thanks would offer,
  Jesus, Shepherd dear,
  For Thy tender pasture,
  For Thy guiding care.

  And I would implore Thee,
  Be with me this day,
  Lest I from Thee wander,
  Into danger stray. Amen.


  For this new morning with its light,
  For rest and shelter of the night,
  For health and food, for love and friends.
  For everything Thy goodness sends,
  We thank Thee, dearest Lord. Amen.


  I thank Thee, Lord, for sleep and rest,
  For all the things that I love best,
  Now guide me through another day
  And bless my work and bless my play.
  Lord, make me strong for noble ends,
  Protect and bless my loving friends;
  Of all mankind good Christians make.
  All this I ask for Jesus' sake. Amen.


  Jesus, gentle Shepherd,
  Bless Thy lamb to-day;
  Keep me in Thy footsteps,
  Never let me stray.
  Guard me through the daytime.
  Every hour, I pray;
  Keep my feet from straying
  From the narrow way. Amen.


  Keep my little tongue to-day,
  Keep it gentle while I play;
  Keep my hands from doing wrong.
  Keep my feet the whole day long;
  Keep me all, O Jesus mild,
  Keep me ever Thy dear child. Amen.


  Jesus, keep me all this day.
  When at school and when at play;
  May I do all things I ought,
  May I hate each evil thought;
  Help me love and trust in Thee
  Now and through eternity. Amen.


  O blessed Lord, protect Thou me
  And my dear parents graciously;
  With Thy strong arm be ever near
  To brothers and to sisters dear.
  And all our loved ones in the land,
  Protect them with Thine own right hand.
  From sin defend and keep me free;
  Help me a Christlike child to be. Amen.


  My Father, for another night
  Of quiet sleep and rest.
  For all the joys of morning light,
  Thy holy name be blest. Amen.


  Now with the new-born day I give
  Myself anew to Thee,
  That as Thou willest, I may live,
  And what Thou willest, be. Amen.


  Lord, for the mercies of this night
  My humble thanks I pay
  And unto Thee I give myself
  To-day and every day. Amen.


  Whate'er I do, things great or small
  Whate'er I speak or frame.
  Thy glory may I seek in all,
  Do all in Jesus' name.

  My Father, for His sake I pray.
  Thy child accept and bless
  And lead me by Thy grace to-day
  In paths of righteousness. Amen.


I thank Thee, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son,
that Thou hast kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray
Thee that Thou wouldst keep me this day also from sin and every evil,
that all my doings and life may please Thee. For into Thy hands I
commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Thy holy angel lie
with me, that the wicked Foe may have no power over me. Amen.

Evening Prayers.


  Savior, lay Thy hand on me,
  Bless me, and remember me. Amen.


  Now I lay me down to sleep;
  I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to keep.
  If I should die before I wake.
  I pray Thee, Lord, my soul to take;
  And this I ask for Jesus' sake. Amen.


  Dear Father in heaven,
  Look down from above;
  Bless papa and mama,
  And those whom I love.

  May angels guard over
  My slumbers, and when
  The morning is breaking,
  Awake me. Amen.


  Now the light has gone away;
  Savior, listen while I pray.
  Asking Thee to watch and keep
  And to send me quiet sleep.

  Jesus, Savior, wash away
  All that has been wrong to-day;
  Help me every day to be
  Good and gentle, more like Thee.

  Let my near and dear ones be
  Always near and dear to Thee.
  O bring me and all I love
  To Thy happy home above. Amen.


  In my little bed I lie:
  Heavenly Father, hear my cry;
  Lord, keep Thou me through this night.
  Bring me safe to morning light. Amen.


  The day is past and over,
  All thanks, O Lord, to Thee!
  O Jesus, keep me in Thy sight
  And save me through the coming night.


  The day is done;
  O God the Son,
  Look down upon
  Thy little one!

  Keep me this night,
  And shed round me
  Thy presence bright.

  I need not fear
  If Thou art near;
  Thou art my Savior
  Kind and dear. Amen.

  The ill that I this day have done.
  That with the world, myself, and Thee
  I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. Amen.


  Watch o'er a little child to-night,
  Blest Savior from above,
  And keep me till the morning light
  Within Thine arms of love. Amen.


  Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me:
  Bless Thy little child to-night;
  Through the darkness be Thou near me,
  Keep me safe till morning light.

  All this day Thy hand has led me,
  And I thank Thee for Thy care;
  Thou hast warmed me, clothed me, fed me;
  Listen to my evening prayer.

  May my sins be all forgiven;
  Bless the friends I love so well;
  Take me, Lord, at last to heaven.
  Happy there with Thee to dwell. Amen.


  Lord, send me sleep that I may live;
  The wrongs I've done this day forgive.
  Bless every deed and thought and word
  I've rightly done, or said, or heard.
  Bless relatives and friends alway;
  Teach all the world to watch and pray.
  My thanks for all my blessings take
  And hear my prayer for Jesus' sake.


  Abide with me! Fast falls the eventide,
  The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide!
  When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
  Help of the helpless, O abide with me! Amen.


  At the close of every day,
  Lord, to Thee I kneel and pray.
  Look upon Thy little child,
  Look in love and mercy mild.
  O forgive and wash away
  All my naughtiness this day,
  And both when I sleep and wake
  Bless me for my Savior's sake. Amen.


  Lord, I have passed another day
  And come to thank Thee for Thy care.
  Forgive my faults in work or play
  And listen to my evening prayer.
  Thy favor gives me daily bread
  And friends, who all my wants supply:
  And safely now I rest my head,
  Preserved and guarded by Thine eye.


  All praise to Thee, my God, this night
  For all the blessings of the light:
  Keep me, O keep me, King of kings,
  Beneath Thine own almighty wings. Amen.


  I fall asleep in Jesus' wounds,
  There pardon for my sins abounds;
  Yea, Jesus' blood and righteousness
  My jewels are, my glorious dress,
  Wherein before my God I'll stand
  When I shall reach the heavenly land.


  The toils of day are over;
  I lift my heart to Thee
  And ask that free from peril
  The hours of night may be.
  O Jesus, make their darkness light
  And guard me through the coming night. Amen.

done wrong this day and keep me safe all the night while I am asleep. Amen.

Thou hast graciously kept me this day; and I pray Thee that Thou wouldst
forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this
night. For into Thy hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all
things. Let Thy holy angel be with me, that the wicked Foe may have no
power over me. Amen.

  Let me have Thy loving mind.

  Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
  In Thy gracious hands I am;

  Each a lowly mind;

  Daily by Thy might
  What is wrong to conquer
  And to choose the right. Amen.


  Jesus, from Thy throne on high,
  Far above the bright blue sky,
  Look on us with loving eye;
  Hear us, holy Jesus!

  Be Thou with us every day,
  In our work and in our play,
  When we learn and when we pray;
  Hear us, holy Jesus!

  Glad to learn each holy way,
  Ever ready to obey;
  Hear us, holy Jesus!

  May we ever try to be
  From our sinful tempers free,
  Pure and gentle, Lord, like Thee;

  Who upon the cross didst die--
  Hear us, holy Jesus! Amen.

Almighty and most merciful God, who in Thy infinite goodness hast
committed us unto the charge of loving parents, who are to watch over us
and provide for all our wants of body and soul, we pray Thee, protect

they may instruct and train us in all useful knowledge, we pray Thee,

things well-pleasing to Thee and profitable to us; through Jesus Christ,
our Lord. Amen.

For a Blessed End.


  While life's paths we still are pressing,
  Grant us, Father, steadfast faith
  And for Christ's sake grant the blessing
  Of a peaceful, Christian death. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer.


Our Father who art in heaven; Hallowed be Thy Name; Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; Give us this day our daily
bread; And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass
against us; And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil;
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and
ever. Amen.

Psalm 23.


1. The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.

2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; He leadeth me beside the
still waters.

3. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for
His name's sake.

4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will
fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort

5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The Common Doxology.


  Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
  Praise Him, all creatures here below;
  Praise Him above, ye heavenly host:
  Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
