Labor Day Prayer


This morning the verse that resonates in my heart is “Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest for your souls.  My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-30

I invite you to take a moment to ponder these words.  Are you weighed down with the cares of this life?  Are you stressed out?  Anxious?  Are you experiencing a lot of pressure?  If so, this prayer is for you.

“Jesus, I need You.  I’m stressed out, weary, and burdened with many things.  You said to come to You and so I am today.  I’m bringing you everything that weighs me down.  I’ve tried to do it all on my own, but it’s not working.  So I’m laying it all at Your feet.  I need rest and know that it only comes when I’m yoked to You, Your ways, Your purposes.  Forgive me for trying to do it on my own.  I surrender to You.  Thank you for lifting off from me all that is not of You.  I receive Your love for me today, your grace, peace and hope.  Amen.”
