April 24 Prayer
Saturday Slow Down
Take the day to cease from anxious work that does not produce peace.
We work day and night out of fear of scarcity.
Our spirits want and long for what satisfies.
Yet, God gives rest to his loved ones.
We are his loved ones, his fellow workers created to be a dwelling place.
A sacred space where his spirit lives.
So take this Saturday to slow down and breathe in
what brings life to you.
See beauty before you and gaze a while.
Soak in life so you may be recreated
and know what is fitting for the moment.
Pray this day in reflection;
‘May my heart be an open container for your spirit life to grow.
May my eyes see what astounds me as a message of hope.
May we, your holy dwelling, be at peace with the works you are creating through us in this hour.’
Psalm 127:1-2, 1Cor.3:9,16
