Teach me to Rest…

Father God, thank You that Jesus is my Good and Faithful Shepherd. Thank You for the times You bring me to a halt in the hustle and bustle of this frenzied life and cause me to take time to rest.

May I listen to Your voice, respond to Your gracious leading, and lie down in the green pastures into which You lead me. Help me control my busy-ness and enjoy Your Rest, for I pray this in Jesus’ precious name, who taught me the value of coming aside to rest when He was here among us, AMEN.

“He makes me to lie down in green pastures: he leads me beside the still waters.”
(Psalm 23:2)
