Pray Scriptures for Rest and Sleep

If you struggle with resting or sleeping at night because of anxiety, stress, or insomnia, know that God is working for you 24/7. Even when you are sleeping, God is going to battle for us. Be at rest knowing God has you taken care of. We pray these scriptures will give you the rest and sleep you need!

Resting in God

Psalm 91:1 (AMP)

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand].

1 Peter 1:21 (AMP)

And through Him you believe [confidently] in God [the heavenly Father], who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are [centered and rest] in God.

Matthew 11:28 (AMP)

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]."

Matthew 11:29 (AMP)

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls.

Proverbs 19:23 (AMP)

The fear of the Lord leads to life, so that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.

Declarations of Rest

Psalm 62:7 (AMP)

On God my salvation and my glory rest; He is my rock of [unyielding] strength, my refuge is in God.

When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

God Rested

Genesis 2:2 (AMP)

And by the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested (ceased) on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.

Genesis 2:3 (AMP)

So God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it [as His own, that is, set it apart as holy from other days], because in it He rested from all His work which He had created and done.

Exodus 20:11 (AMP)

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and everything that is in them, and He rested (ceased) on the seventh day. That is why the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy [that is, set it apart for His purposes].
