God, tonight we pray for the one who feels so overwhelmed by life right now. It seems that no matter how hard she tries she can’t seem to get ahead. It feels that when she’s doing one thing she needs to hurry because there’s something else of equal or greater importance she also needs to do.
It’s exhausting, God, and sometimes we just want to quit. To quit trying so hard only to feel like a failure. To quit doing all you can do only to feel as though there is so much more that needs to be done.
So God, tonight we ask that you please remind each of us that your yoke is easy and your burden is light. Help us remember that life is not some emergency to be rushed through, rather it’s a gift to be lived fully. And please remind us that you will always help us, strengthen us, and enable us to do the things that you have called us to do.
We love you and we thank you for loving us and walking with us through the ups and downs of life. Thank you that you understand our hearts and care about our burdens. We hand each of them over to you now.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
