Oasis – a place to worship
the Lord and be refreshed
Jesus said: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." –Matthew 11:28-30
Father God, we worship You this evening and praise the Name of Jesus Your Son. As usual, we are always seeking your help.
When we lack energy, give us Your Spirit. When we lack discipline, grant us Your love. When we lack time, bless us with Your patience.
We have so much to do, God. Smile on our tasks. Help us to be patient with those we need to help…or at least help them to be patient with us.
Let the patience and forgiveness we receive from others equal the patience we extend to them. The world around us seems to be spinning out of control. We am worried about many things and people. Hear us now as we silently name them before You.
Be with us Lord. We go through this life as best we can and sometimes it’s just barely enough. Other times we fall seriously short of the mark. Walk with us. Make us aware of Your presence beside us throughout this week. Help us to glorify You each day.
God, there are times when we just want to throw in the towel and give up on everything. And the week is barely half over! Help us to be kind to those who aren’t. Help us be kind to our family and friends who must live with us. Help us to be kind to those who try our patience each day.
We’re feeling overwhelmed God. Stand beside us; let us feel Your presence. Stay with us God. Get us through this crazy week. Fill our souls. In Jesus’ Name, we pray.
