Prayer for Rest

Doldrums, Sand Dune in Ocean City, MarylandLord of the Sabbath,

Teach me to rest.

Disconnect me from the Internet; take away my phone; transport  me go off the grid.

That I might rest with you.

That I might be truly present with others.

That I might once again cherish my time not working.

Calm my nerves; cleanse me of fear; let me not care what others think.

That I might recognize the man in the mirror.

That I might care for my kids and my parents

That I might be your servant without reservation.

Forgive my absence in mind and body; grant me your presence; fill my empty heart with your Holy Spirit

Breath life into these bones.

In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
