“Give Me Rest”

Here’s a prayer from 20th century Dutch priest and author Henri Nouwen (1932 – 1996):

“O Lord, You know me more deeply and fully than I know myself. You love me with a greater love than I can love myself. You even offer me more than I can desire. Take my tired body, my confused mind, and my restless soul into your arms and give me rest, simple quiet rest. Amen”
