Heavenly Father, I welcome the new day with you. Thank you for the majestic sunrise. Thank you for showing how you value uniqueness in that each sunrise can be different, some pink, some orange, some with wisps of clouds, others with a mist or a fog. Different from an island or from the bottom of a mountain. Different from within a dense forest or on a boat in the middle of the ocean. Different in summer and in winter. Even near nonexistent near the north or south pole! Thank you Lord. And thank you for the scripture for today that reminds us that Jesus promised that his yoke was easy:
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)
Lord, what an exciting time. Tomorrow I finish my first 40 days of prayers for your daughter Lindsey with a prayer based on the letter Z. Today I am happy to pray for Lindsey, that you would remind her that your yoke is easy. It is not something to be avoided at all costs. Remind her that your burden is light – it is not a heavy burden. Let her see this with her own eyes and her own heart today. I ask that today she would find your yoke extremely easy and your burden very light. And we will give you the glory Lord. All the glory is yours. I ask this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen.
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.
All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
