A Prayer for Sabbath

A prayer for Sabbath rest during stewardship season (or anytime)
~ by Pastor Salying Wong

Because I belong to God and not to myself,
I will rest from worrying about the future
and rest in God who will accompany me all my days;
I will rest from frustration at things not working out as I want them to and rest in God’s providence;
I will rest from fear
and rest in my experience of courage when days were hard.
I will rest from complaining
and rest in the beauty and pleasure all around me.
For God’s yoke is easy and burden is light,
and I will find rest for my soul.
