““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 gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29 NIV
Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to teach us, to lead us, to save us and to give us rest.
How encouraging to know when I become worrisome, stressed or overwhelmed that I can lay all my burdens at your feet. Thank you for this precious gift. Please keep me from forgetting this truth Lord. When the weight of the world is on my shoulders, help me to turn it over to you.
I pray for those who are carrying heavy burdens today; for those who have no hope and are at the end of their own strength. I pray they would seek you and find you. I pray they would find rest for their souls.
Please fill me with your Holy Spirit today. Renew me. Refresh me. Replenish my soul.
In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
(Meditation Monday: These scriptures and prayers are intended to give you encouragement for the day and week. The Lord tells us to meditate in His word day and night (Joshua 1:8) so read the scripture, pray the prayer and meditate as you wait for Him to speak to you.)
Thank you for visiting, God bless.
