A Good Night Every Night

Daily Devotion for January 6, 2018


In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.
—Psalm 4:8 NIV

Getting more sleep ranks in the top ten of New Year’s resolutions. Here’s a simple tip to help you have a restful night. Before you go to sleep, commit your soul to God’s care. Pray the Lord’s Prayer, followed by intercessions for others and lastly, any petitions for yourself.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, fortify me each night with Your peace. Watch over me, bless my house and my loved ones. Help me rest in Your promise.

"If we can get Guideposts inspirational stories into the hands of people who may not have a devotional life, they can share the true-life stories of how God works in the world. The joy of Guideposts is their free, donated magazines to my hospital.         --Rob C.,  Director of Pastoral Care.
