Lord Of My Rest

Lord,

Let me surrender to the flow of your rest,

pausing in the ebb,

lying still on the shores

of your mercy and grace.

Breathing in your presence,

refreshed as the mist and spray of your Spirit

cleanses and washes away the week’s turbulence.

Let me lean back into your love and acceptance,

resting fully on all the grains of sand

of your thoughts toward me,

caring, concerned, wise, devoted, nurturing, empowering,

your strength and support emanates within me.

Let me bask in the radiance of your glory,

rays of light gently hitting my face

making it aglow with your joy and beauty,

my back warmed against the praises

rising through all creation

bursting like sunset

from the depths of the earth

to the farthest shore

to the mountaintops,

all singing, crying out,

glory, glory to God in the highest.

I bless you, the risen One,

for ushering me into your rest.

Amen.
