Slow Me Down
Slow me down, Lord, and inspire me to send my roots deep into the soil of life’s enduring values. Give me the calmness of the everlasting hills. Help me to understand the magical power of sleep. Teach me the art of taking minute vacations.
In Jesus’ name, we pray that you remove our need to achieve all that we can be and instead allow us to surrender to what you can be in us. Give us ways to avoid the busyness that will keep us on edge and off center on this day.
