Daily prayer is essential to a healthy Christian life. Often, we focus so much on the future and all that is to come that we forget to enjoy the peace of being still. Sitting in God’s holy and loving presence can fill us with peace, understanding, and a true sense of knowing He is working in our lives and within us.
A Wednesday Prayer for Rest
Thank You for this Wednesday. Father, we are all guilty of looking so far ahead into the future that we forget to slow down and just be still in Your presence. Lord, help us to not merely try and rush through this Wednesday; rather, help us to linger in You.
Lord, teach us the beauty of resting in You. Teach us what holy rest truly looks like. Beyond just sleep or lounging, we know that resting securely in You forms a peace that goes beyond understanding and provides a true refreshment, and so we pray this day for Your holy rest upon us.
Knowing that each season in our lives holds significant meaning and perfect timing, we can rest assured that You use all things. As easy as it can be to fall into routines and ruts, we ask that You heighten our senses to embrace and appreciate these days. These days are not mundane, for they are Your days that You have chosen for us to live in. Help us to live to the fullest and to rest to the fullest. We praise Your holy name, oh Lord.
Daily prayer brings us closer to the Lord in relationship.
Knowing that we can trust Him in truth and Spirit provides a confidence and peace that He not only loves us, He cares about our daily lives. Holy rest in Him brings us to a place of deep restoration only He can provide.
Slowing down for a deeper respite within the love of God is the true way of finding and airing harmony in our lives.
Human bodies require sleep to function properly, and in the same way, our spirits require rest or being still to become rejuvenated. Prayer through His Spirit, purely listening and quietly coming before the one who can provide all things through Christ Jesus, can provide this rest.
