Shabbat Shalom

Lord,

I praise you and thank you for your rest.

Lord of Shabbat,

thank you for eternal, spiritual rest in you,

living waters flowing to my mind, heart, and body,

regenerating cells and bringing life,

I praise you for this day each week

to come… and rest.

I love your presence,

I love your Spirit,

and I choose to trust you Lord,

Loosen my grip on my life,

and help me to surrender all once more into your hands.

Grant me the grace to commune with you,

gift me with prayer —

with words and spirit,

to enter into your heart,

see with your eyes, hear with your ears,

and to know your heart beating

throughout your Word.

Replenish me, rejuvenate me,

in all the dry, weary places.

In you alone am I revived and restored.

I bless you Lord,

Lord of my rest and heart.

Amen.
