Your will be done

Your will be done (Matthew 6:10; NIV).

Our lives are in his hands (Psalm 66:9; NLT).

Wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

Never stop praying (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NLT).



Lord God,

Sometimes I wish so much
I could be well again,

For life is passing me by
Day after day.

It seems so pointless, Lord,
Yet may your will be done;

So I rest in your hands,
And wait, and pray.


I live for you

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them” (John 14:23; NLT).

There is one Lord […] who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit (1 Corinthians 6:17).



Lord God,
I live for you,
And you for me.

Lord God,
I dwell in you,
And you in me.

Lord God,
I pray through you,
And you through me.

Lord God,
I rest in you,
And you in me.

Lord God,
I serve through you,
And you through me.

Lord God,
I’m one with you,
And you with me.



Remain in me, and I will remain in you (John 15:4; NLT).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31; NKJV).

I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! (Habakkuk 3:18; NLT).


During meditation,
The longer I stay
In your light –

Or praying –

The stronger
And more joyful
I become.



I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart (John 14:27; NLT).

Yes, my soul, find rest in God (Psalm 62:5; NIV).

You will find rest for your souls (Matthew 11:29; NLT).


Slow down your body,
Till you find
God’s peace

Next, still your mind,
Until you find
God’s peace

Then calm your heart,
Until you find
God’s peace

And, last of all, relax your soul,
Until you find
God’s peace



Have compassion on me, Lord, for I am weak (Psalm 6:2; NLT).

Patient endurance is what you need now (Hebrews 10:36; NLT).

This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent (John 6:29; NLT).

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms (Deuteronomy 33:27; NIV).

When I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10; NLT).


Living with fatigue
Is very hard.

Please help me
To endure it patiently,

By trusting in
The one you sent,

And resting in your arms
Each day,

For with you, when I’m weak,
Then I am strong.



Too tired

I am weary and worn out, O God (Proverb 30:1; NLT).

Be still, and know that I am God! (Psalm 46:10; NLT).

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).


I’m too tired

For speech
Or thought,

For praise
Or worship,

Or supplication.

So I can only
Rest before you, Lord,

In stillness,
And in silent contemplation.
