Let us rest

Our nervous hands, our antsy feet, sometimes we feel like manikins.

We feel weak & so unable to move & the distress is unnerving. We feel so lifeless

O Lord gives the faith to rest in You as our outward mobility declines.

Let our inner person have more of Christ. We need more evidence of Your presence.

Deepen our confidence of Your love.

Deepen our understanding of the cross, the empty tomb, the Holy Spirit dwelling in us.

Our bodies don’t function like they did. We admit our fear.

Help us to trust when we’re still afraid.

Help us move forward through our weaknesses.

We fear Your silence, we’re surrounded by our loneliness as we feel so useless.

Let us hear Your clear voice; You are our God You are our savior Lord Jesus.

Speak Your empowering creative words in our hearts.

When we’re so afraid drown us in the river of Your grace.

The fires of our afflictions are consuming us.

Let us hear Your voice clearly every moment saying

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when you go through the rivers,

they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,

and the flame shall not consume you”

Isaiah 43:1–2
