Dear Lord Jesus, at times I feel so weary and tired as I seek to carry out the duties and tasks of each day – Help me Lord to step aside from the business of the day and to spend time simply waiting upon You - for You have promised that those that wait on You will renew their strength; they will mount us with wings as eagles; they will run and not grow weary - they shall walk and not faint.
Help me Lord to cast ALL my burdens on You and to learn to wait on You in every situation - even in the hustle and bustle of the daily round.
Lord too often I try to do things in my own strength and only when I grow weary does it occur to me to take steps to consciously abide in You and to cast all my cares upon You. Teach me Lord to truly abide in You, moment by moment and to learn to wait for You as my first option, rather than as a last resort.
Show me I pray what it truly means to wait on the Lord, and to abide in You moment by moment - instead of trying to do things in my own strength – Thank You for hearing my prayer, in Jesus name I pray,
