Father God, we take rest in your promises. We rest in your eternal hope. We rest between your powerful shoulders. We rest from service to be renewed in your Word and encouraged by your Holy Spirit. May we sense that we are ensconced within your presence and encircled by your love. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.” (Hebrews 4: 9-10 ESV)
