Lord 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.
Prayer for Rest
