contemporary prayers for today

god I need you


God I need you,
In every area of my life.

Come soften my heart to love and forgive those around me.
Come inspire my work to always find a creative solution and to work with passion.
Come protect my thoughts and change the way I think from worry to hope.
Come restore my self-worth, when I am low come remind me of who I am and set me free.
Come direct my life, guide me through each situation and lead me back when I get lost.

God I need you,
In every area of my life.
Soften me, inspire me, protect me, rest me, and direct me each day.

God I need you.

Amen

Christ offers rest for the weary

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me-watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."

(Matthew 11:28-30, The Message)
