Father, Thank you for the gift of rest . . . a blessing which heals and restores us. Forgive us for failing to get enough rest, for foolishly trying to do too much. Forgive us for procrastinating and failing to use our time well. You created time and seasons. You provide structure and order. Guide us and help us to work, play, and rest according to Your will for us. May we honor You in all ways. Amen.
