Lord I thank You that You showed us the importance to take time alone - to take time and rest awhile, and not to allow all the needs and necessities of life to deluge us.
Lord I confess that I have allowed the many stresses and strains of life to almost overwhelm me, over the past few months, and I want to thank You for my forthcoming vacation and pray that You would replenish my strength and renew my spirit within me.
I pray that I would take the opportunity to truly get alone with You Lord during this vacation - and to rest in Your love. Refresh my heart and restore my spirit within me I pray and help me to spend quality time in Your presence… washing myself in Your Word, which is life and health and wholeness - and which I know that I have neglected.. as I have sought to accomplish all I needed to do in my own strength rather than to rely on You, as I know I should.
May Your words dwell in me richly and teach me how to truly rest in You, even when my life is busy and pressures are bearing down - for You have promised that Your grace is sufficient in every situation of life, especially when we find we have heavy burdens that are hard to bear – so into Your hand I commit my life, as I seek day by day to cast all my burdens on You, in Jesus name I pray,
