Prayer for February 9: Please pray with me. God of slumber, give rest to all who need it – to those who labor at night, who work long hours, who do what they can to provide for their families. Give rest to those who are fighting sickness. Give rest to those who face death. So many people are tired Lord. They are worn out and exhausted. They are literally killing themselves through their labor. Give them rest. Even you rested after your work of creation, why do we think we are better than you? Give us the rest we need. Amen.
