Father, I come before You today as I feel weighed down by the increasing numbers of burdens and battles, stresses and strains that seem to be building up in my life.
Lord, I know that You are faithful and true, and I pray that You would take from me each and every heavy burden that I am carrying today, just as You have promised. Lord, I give You each stressful situation, each hurtful word and every difficult circumstance of life that seems to be bearing down so heavily upon me.
You have said in Your Word that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light and that when I cast all my cares upon You and lay all my burdens down at Your feet, I will find rest for my soul. Lord, I need that rest now, for I am weary and heavy-laden, but I am looking to You for my trust is in You.
Enable me to rest beside Your still waters of refreshment and sleep in Your arms of comfort. Give me I pray, that perfect peace that only flows from You to those that have their mind stayed on You. Keep my heart and mind focussed on Jesus I pray, and help me not to be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication make my requests known to You, with a thankful heart.
Thank You for You are a good and faithful God. In Jesus' name I pray,
