Today I pray for rest-in all its blessed forms-for you (add names) and for your entire family. “Rest” is an amazing idea. It means cessation (at least temporarily) from a burden, a time to refresh, rebuild and restore. It refers to the coming of the Holy Spirit to rest upon you. With rest comes peace and quiet. It is a time to refocus and understand life in new contexts. It is a tonic for the frustration of the mind and the anguish of the soul. With hospital visits, transfusions, house sales and moving my prayer is that you find rest. “and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
