Prayer for March 1

Prayer for March 1: Please pray with me.  God of Sabbath, give us rest.  The world can bear and does bear down on us.  It can overwhelm us.  It can drown us.  It tires us out.  We cannot fight it – it is too big.  We are tired.  We are tired of bad news.  We’re tired of contradictions and hypocrisy.  We’re tired of death and destruction. We’re tired of brokenness.  We reach out to you – give us rest.  Let our hearts find rest when they rest in you.  Give us rest so that we may be renewed and restored – ready to face the world anew.  Not to fight it.  Not to fix it.  But to live differently in it.  To show love where love is absent.  To be peace where peace is absent.  To show mercy where mercy lacks.  To fill the void with you.  Amen.
