Here I am Lord, I come to You and asking for rest. I come to seek Your presence. I long for it and your healing power, too.
I set aside my preoccupations and chores at this moment to feel Your presence. I am refreshed if I am with You. Cultivate in me an appetite for Your Word and presence.
Help me Lord to read the Bible more to feed me spiritually, ‘cause it’s the food for the soul. It is Your Words that can give release to my often-failing heart. Let me savor it, ingest it and be strengthened by it.
