God's Yoke is Easy

Jesus said:
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”

Matthew 11:28-30

Prayer

Dear Father our prayer today is to learn to let go and let Jesus take our burdens. We pray for His guidance in all that we do. May we learn the value Jesus teaches about surrendering our will to you. Jesus is meek and humble of heart and letting ourselves be guided by him and taught by him we truly do find rest. Without Jesus we worry needlessly about all that is in our lives. But when we put God and Jesus first and give our will to them we find our burdens so much lighter to bear. Thank you Jesus for the gift and thank you dear Father for letting us find a way to have rest. Amen
