THEME: POWER OF PRAYER
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
-Jesus invites us to come to Him which is a form of prayer, that we may find rest. Sometimes we face challenges and difficult situations. Other times we are discouraged and disillusioned by life situations. Jesus reveals that if we desire to live Godly lives we will suffer persecution, but we should stand on His word and He will guide us in His wisdom through faith in Him (2 Timothy 3:12-15). When we come to Christ in prayer, we experience His loving, gentle and lowly heart, and He responds to our needs and cares. Isaiah 55:1-2 reveals God’s response to our needs, and calls everyone who thirsts, to come to the waters, everyone who have no money, to come buy and eat. To come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. His gifts are free, and as we have freely received, we are called to freely give (Matthew 10:8). God looks at our sorrowful hearts and comforts us. He looks at our discouraged hearts and strengthens us. He looks at our anxious hearts and heals us. His yoke is easy and His burden is light, and in Him we rest easy. Jesus reminds us to call upon His name and we shall be saved (Romans 10:13). He encourages us to be strong in Him, and in the power of His might (Ephesians 6:10), and we shall find rest for our souls.
Your burden is light and Your yoke is easy merciful Savior, we submit our lives unto You, heal all our wounds. Heal our hearts and minds dear Jesus. Heal all those who are sick and suffering merciful Savior. Restore our souls Holy Spirit we humbly ask You. Comfort us with Your grace we humbly beseech You.
