Prayer for Rest

“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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matt 11:28-30)

Lord Jesus, I come to you because I am feeling – fill in the blank – (tired, exhausted, sad, miserable etc.) , and I need your rest. I choose to take your yoke upon me, so that I can learn from you. Thank you for being gentle with me, and humble in your heart. May I find rest for my soul. For your yoke is much easier for me, and your burden is always light.

Today, I find rest for my soul, and my rest is found in Jesus. Amen.
