Teach Me To Rest

Lord,

Help me to slow down,

and find my rest in you.

Please forgive me

for running 100 miles an hour,

trying to sustain myself,

even when everything falls apart

sooner or later in my strength.

Forgive me for not turning to you sooner.

Thank you for your grace

to turn to you,

your counsel that is for my good.

Lord, when I wake up,

I will turn to you,

to seek your protection and grace,

to order my day with your priorities,

to lean on you for strength.

I will meditate upon your Word

throughout my day,

rooting deep

to find living water,

walking alongside you,

taking care of my temple,

moving, nourishing body, mind, and soul,

to serve and love well.

I will bookend my day in you,

keeping short accounts with you,

cleansing my heart,

cultivating a thankful heart,

and entering into night,

seeking sweet sleep

as a blessing from you.

Have your way in my life Lord.

I bless you,

Amen.
