Prayer for February 12: Please pray with me. God of Sabbath, why do we ignore you? Why do we push ourselves to our limits, exhausted? Why do we wear ourselves out? Why do we listen to and become consumed by drama? What is so attractive about them that we are willing to ignore you and your call to rest and to listen to you? That makes no sense? You offer a different way Lord. Open our eyes to see how badly we need you. Open our hearts to know how badly we need Sabbath. Amen.
