Prayer for September 5

Prayer for September 5: Please pray with me.  God of Sabbath, today we pray for all those who cannot or will not rest.  There is much to do in our culture Lord.  So often we make our work into an idol – yes an idol to be worshiped.  What else can we call it when we devote so much time, energy, and attention to it.  Yes, it is important, but… God, we ask that we would learn how to rest – really rest.  To disconnect, to put the phone down, to leave notifications behind for a time.  To realize that all of these things – the technology and devices – they all exist to serve us, yet so often the reverse seems to be the case.  Open our eyes and hearts to hear your notification – that you call on us to rest so that we can live out our vocation refreshed and ready. And to do it in such a way that we aren’t consumed by it, but rather invigorated and ready.  Amen.
