Lord of the Sabbath,
We praise you for creating us and placing us in a beautiful world, for enabling us work to support our families, and for allowing us time to rest.
In this weary world, teach us to rest and to offer hospitality to those around us.
In the power of your Holy Spirit, help us to be humble like salt, that flavors, preserves, and graces every table and to radiate your light when darkness threatens to overwhelm.
In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
