Prayer for the Weary

by stewart

O Lord, help me

Not to be in mind today.

As You Will, please rescue me

And lift me higher.

My thoughts are filled

With worry and wanting

And I am so tired

Of not being satisfied,

And constantly afraid.


Guide me.  Help me to rest

In Your Caress

And bathe tirelessly

In the peace of Your Grace.


O Lord, help me

To fight this battle

That rages in my mind.

Thoughts, one upon another,

That will not let me rest.


Help me to pause and kneel

In the shade of Your Kindness;

Swimming in the gentle water

Of Your Grace and Mercy.

O I am so tired of myself.

I need a vacation

From my endless thoughts.


O Lord, please lead me back

Into the calm

And serenity

Of Your Loving Friends.

Help me to be still again

And surrender

To Your Loving Caress.
