Blessed be the Lord who daily bears us up under the burdens of life. Father, let Your servant experience a lightness of life’s load and a rest in You that my soul craves. Meet me in the secret place even as You continually whisper to my heart in order to woo me back to that place of intimate connection with You. Draw me into the safety of Your loving arms where I can take refuge from the relentless demands placed upon me. Remind me that I am complete in You, that I am Your delight and that You delight to provide, sustain and grow me. Open the ears of my heart to hear the song You are singing over me so that I can dance to the rhythm of divine love in Christ with joy in every step. Under the beautiful word of Zephaniah 3:17 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I lift these prayers to the God of my heart.
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17, ESV
