The year is starting, but we came from a very troubled year for many people. It’s common to feel tired and overwhelmed, even if 2023 is just beginning.
In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am meek and lowly in heart; and you will find rest for your souls.”Matthew 11:28-29
May we cling to Jesus and learn from Him to be meek and humble.
Today, I invite you to pray for your neighbor and maybe for yourself so that God will bring you rest, remembering that you don’t need to pray the same way I will leave it here. After all, everyone has their own way of talking to our God.
Lord, my God and Father, we thank You for another breath of life that You have given us. It was through Your grace that we came this far.
Holy Spirit, we cry out to You to bring relief and comfort to our hearts. Bring peace and rest into our lives. That rest that can only come from above.
Father, we ask for the embrace of love and comfort that we can only find in You. May we fall asleep in Your resting arms. We know we have everything we need in You.
Sustain us and help us to be meek and humble like Jesus, so that we can get through every difficult moment that presents itself in our lives.
We pray to You, in the name of Jesus,
