Sabbath Morning Prayer

From this morning’s Lectio 365 devotional:

In his book about the Sabbath, Wayne Muller says:

Because we do not rest, we lose our way. We miss the compass points that would show us where to go, we bypass the nourishment that would give us succor. We miss the quiet that would give us wisdom. We miss the joy and love born of effortless delight.

Holy Spirit, help me to rest today, and as I do so, give me wisdom. I welcome Your presence and revelation in my life. Converse with my spirit so that the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart may be acceptable in Your sight today.
