The prayer before bed is a way of reminding God to always be there and give us a day of peace, leading us to do good things so that we can get through the days of sorrow. Besides, you can offer to God your faults to ask God to purify and help you sleep peacefully, and may God always be there to protect you.

Perform a reading of the Holy Spirit:
“We ask the Holy Spirit to be infinitely bright, we ask the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts, who trust God, and to light the fire of love for God in our hearts, we ask God to bring down the Holy Spirit. Fix everything inside but us.
We pray to God, who has brought down the Holy Spirit and taught the Apostles, and we ask God to bring down the Holy Spirit, to comfort us to do good works, for the great industry Jesus Christ is our Lord. Amen.”
Recite the prayer of repentance
“My Lord, you are perfectly good. You made me and gave birth to your Son, suffered to die for me, and I betrayed you with all my heart, and I grieved and hated all my sins above all things. I am willing to repent, and by the grace of God, I will shun the occasion of sin, and work together to atone for my sins. Amen.”
Recite the Word of God prayer
“Jesus, you promised to be with us every day until the end of the world. We believe you are present among us here. May you give your Holy Spirit, that you may teach us to listen to your Word, to know and love you more/ to courageously do what you teach us. Amen.”
Read a passage from the Gospel

On the third day the dead rises; ascending to the right of the Father; the next day because heaven judges the living and the dead. I believe there is a church all over the world, saints in fellowship. I believe in forgiveness. I believe the latter-day human body is resurrected. I believe in life. Amen.”

Recite the Queen’s Prayer
This Sutra is recited before bed in honor of you offering your soul to Our Lady. “Good Mother, the Queen, make us live, be happy, be trusted. Dear Mother, the children and grandchildren of E, and in the full guest place, cry out to you. We are in a place of weeping, lamenting, and vowing to you. O Thou art our Elector, look upon us.
Oh, wait, by the way, soft. St. Mary’s lifetime of virginity. Amen”
Reading the Abyss Sutra
This pre-sleep prayer that you need to make to pray for grandparents, parents, spouses, and children who have passed away.
“Lord, I am in the abyss crying out to you, please listen to my cry, listen to my pleading. If God accepts sin, who is free? Because you have good hearts, and because of your promises, I have relied on you. My soul relied on that promise, and I relied on you. Those who make God’s people, night and day, rely on him for help, for he is very good or infinitely merciful, will forgive all sins, who make his people change.
Lord, give the soul… to rest forever and to be infinitely enlightened. Lord, save your soul… to be released from prison, but laid to rest. Amen.”
Read the Thank You Sutra
This is a pre-sleep sutra reading expressing the feelings of thanking Our Lady for the grace of the past day, for you to live to this day, and for you to ask for the grace of a peaceful night’s sleep.
“I thank God that God is infinitely good, does not leave me, does not leave me for eternity, but gives birth to me, for me to be human, to keep me, to protect me, to let the Second Person come down as a man, to atone for dying in the tree.
The cross for me, which gave me the sanctity of God, and bore many blessings to the Church, and gave my body day (night) all good, saved me again, lest I die repentant.
So if the Saints are in the kingdom of Heaven, thank God, I will join the Saints and give them to my Lord, thank you the same. Amen.”
This is the end of the sutras read before going to bed. “Lord, I surrender my soul and body in your hands. If you have blessed me during the day, may you also keep me at night, lest I commit any sin that will displease you or die repentant? May I live and die with a love for you. Amen.”
