Forgive me Lord for the many times that I seem to forget or ignore You in the midst of my busy working life, when I am rushing from one important issue to another or find myself consumed with getting the job done, rather than resting my anxious thoughts on You.
Lord I know the importance of quietness – of resting in You and being still in Your presence and I pray that You would use this vacation to help me reassess my relationship with You - so that in the future I am able to look to You and depend on You, rather than on myself. Teach me Lord how to rest in You rather than wearing myself out with my own self-effort.
Thank You for Your loving patience with me. Thank You for having waited for me to come to this important decision and for prompting me to do so – for I know that my priority in life is to get right with You and to keep You at the centre of all that I do.
Teach me Lord to be quite before You – to be still in Your presence and to cast all my burdens upon You – even those that I have while at work. Search my heart, I pray during this quality time I have with You over this vacation period… and may I emerge from it more ready and able to cast ALL my burdens upon You - knowing that you are interested in EVERY area of my life, including my working life… in Jesus name I pray,
