Prayer for Rest

Join us as we pray for rest during the Term 2 holidays.

Our Glorious Father God,

We think about the hectic lives we sometimes lead, for the constant stream of meetings and deadlines, of homework and after school activities, and it can be easy to feel like we are constantly busy. As we finish of the school term and head into a time of holidays, we pray that you can give us all a chance to rest and be still.

Help us to remember to slow down at times, to rest our bodies and our minds, and to enjoy those around us. We see Your own example in creation where You put aside the seventh day to rest from the work You did, and we remember that if rest is important for You, then it should be important for us.

We ask that through the next couple of weeks of holidays that students and staff can enjoy the time away from school, to re-energise themselves ready for Semester 2.

We pray these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
