How many times have you closed your eyes tightly, breathing deeply and crying out for the Father? Maybe because you couldn’t take it anymore or maybe because you were already one step away from giving up.
The Lord says there in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
The Lord wants to give you rest, but the first step is yours: draw close to Him, trust the Father. Let’s pray for this rest and surrender to God everything we need.
Remembering that you don’t have to repeat the prayer exactly as I’m going to leave it here, because each of us has a specific way of communicating with the Lord. But if you want to accompany me, it will be a pleasure. Feel free to speak your own way.
“Lord my God and Father, we thank you for this breath of life that you have given us today.
Father, on this day, we want to give you all the worry, fatigue, sadness and anguish that have taken over our hearts. We ask that you take care of these things, over which we have no power.
Holy Spirit, come with Your peace, and take our hearts, bringing the calm and rest that only You can give. Calm and bring relief to our souls. Fill us with Your wisdom from above.
Take care of all the details, including those that we often don’t even know if it’s going to work. But we trust that You Lord know. We surrender all our worries and anxieties to You.
We pray in the Holy Name of Jesus,
Grace and peace,
