Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before you today with a heart yearning for rest. The demands of daily life often weigh heavily upon my shoulders, leaving me feeling tired and drained. Lord, I seek your presence, knowing that true rest can only be found in You.

Thank you, Lord, for the many blessings you have bestowed upon me. I am grateful for your constant love, wisdom, and guidance. As I navigate through the busyness of life, I ask that you help me to find moments of peace and stillness to connect with You.

Grant me the ability to lay down my burdens at your feet, trusting that You will carry them for me. Remind me that it is okay to rest, to take a step back, and to recharge. Help me to understand that in my stillness, I can hear your voice more clearly.

Father, I pray for rest in my mind, body, and spirit. Replace my anxieties with your peace, my weariness with your strength, and my restlessness with your calm. Teach me to find joy and tranquility in your presence. Guide me to prioritize my time so that I can make space for restful moments with You.

Thank you, Lord, for being my place of refuge. I trust that in You, I will find the rest I so deeply crave. Help me to abide in your love and to always remember that my true source of rest is found in You.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.
