Dear Heavenly Father,
Today we thank You for commanding Your people to rest. We create busyness in our lives and forget to pause from our endless activities. Help us to cease activities that lead us away from You. Thank you for showing us how important it is for us to stop and be still. Forgive us Lord and guide us back to You, where we can find rest in You.
And he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.
