Work Rest

Lord,

I praise you for your rest,

rest in your love,

rest in your Word,

rest in your commands,

rest in simple obedience to you,

and a relationship with you.

Let my work be rest

as I give my gifts, talents, and skills

back to you for your glory.

Place me where you would maximize your glory

through my life.

Deliver me from making work an idol,

wrapping my worth into my performance,

shrinking back in fear of failing.

Grant me your vision,

boldness, courage, faith, determination,

discipline, diligence, and persistence

to see your plans and will birthed through my life.

Ready me for your kingdom come.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.
