Here is my list of Good Night Scriptures. Again, feel free to add your own to my list!

Psalm 3:5
I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.

2 Samuel 14:17
"And now your servant says, 'May the word of my lord the king bring me rest, for my lord the king is like an angel of God in discerning good and evil. May the LORD your God be with you.' "

Deuteronomy 33:12
About Benjamin he said: "Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders."

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

Psalm 68:13
Even while you sleep among the campfires, the wings of my dove are sheathed with silver, its feathers with shining gold."

Proverbs 3:24
when you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

Exodus 33:14
The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

Job 11:13-19
"Yet if you devote your heart to him and stretch out your hands to him, if you put away the sin that is in your hand and allow no evil to dwell in your tent, then you will lift up your face without shame; you will stand firm and without fear. You will surely forget your trouble, recalling it only as waters gone by. Life will be brighter than noonday, and darkness will become like morning. You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor.

Psalm 16:7-11
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 62:1
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.

Psalm 62:5
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.

Psalm 91:1
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 116:7
Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you.

Proverbs 19:23
The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.

Isaiah 32:18
My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.

Matthew 11:28-30
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Mark 6:31
… he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest."

Hebrews 4:10
for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.

And my favorite:

Psalm 127:2
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.

Thank you SO MUCH for posting these!!! My daughter is 4 months old and has been having a lot of trouble sleeping - for the last two months it has been one thing after another. First she had a cold, then an upper respiratory infection, then we found out she had reflux. We've been praying over her constantly and trying to get her back to a schedule (lately, she's up every 30-60 mins all night then doesn't sleep much during the day). Now, I know what scriptures I can pray over her. :) Thanks again!

Heather I have to say God is so good. I find his Blessings all the time. I know His word never returns void and that He delights in the little and big things in our lives. It always amazes me How he does that. Deuteronomy 33:12
About Benjamin he said: "Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders."
This verse made me smile. Me with my bad shoulder, can rest between THe Lords shoulders because HE LOVES ME. Thank you for taking the time to post these Scriptures.
