Prayers for rest in body, mind and heart

Everlasting and Almighty God, hear our prayers this day and grant us the rest that comes only from your Loving Presence

Heavenly Father, grant us rest for our troubled minds.   We have many unanswered questions in our minds.  Our minds race, speeding from one anxious thought to another, as the world is not as we want it to be or as we imagined it would be.  News reports of war, of natural disasters, of evil doers and of tragedy cause us to worry.   So Father, we come to you with all that stirs within our minds, trusting in Your loving mercies and provision. Grant us rest for our minds

Jesus, Messiah, grant us rest for our weary bodies.  The worries of our mind cause physical tiredness.  Our physical labors cause exhaustion; our illnesses weaken our bodies and make us further vulnerable to yet other illnesses.  We see it in ourselves, in those whom we love, both near and far.   It seems like each day, there is news of another loved one or acquaintance with something wrong, some disease, something to wear out the body.   So Jesus, You who suffered physical affliction and choose to enter our physical world of pain, we come to you with all our afflictions, the physical weariness and sufferings of both our friends and family, and ourselves.  Hear our prayer and grant to all we pray for this day rest for our bodies.

O Holy Spirit, grant us rest for our longing hearts.   The circumstances of our lives and the troubles of this world often leave us with a deep longing for something more.   Though we have much to cause us to give thanks, yet there remains an unsettledness in our hearts, that all is not yet as it should be.   Many times we turn to you when our hearts are lonely and stirring within, but sometimes we look to other things to distract us and bring us comfort.  Forgive us, Holy Comforter, and help us to trust in you and find a peace that passes understanding.   Grant us rest for our longing and wandering hearts.

In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

One Desire, One Heart – John 8:28-29

“When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I am he, and that I do nothing on my own, but speak these things as the Father instructed me. And the one who sent me is with me; he had not left me alone, for I always do what is pleasing to him.”

John 8.28-29Jesus, Lord, you who reveals to us both the real heart of God and the true purpose of our lives, grant that in following after you, in dying to self and rising to the life that is in you alone, that we might:

*Do nothing on our own, but only as the Father instructs.

*Say nothing on our own, but only as the Father has shown.

*Trust that You are with us and never leave us alone.

*Always do what pleases you.

In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Amen.
