A Prayer for Busy People

God of rest,  I'm so busy. The demands of life are piled high, and my schedule is a tyrant. Help me to catch my breath and enter your Sabbath rest now. Free me of all my ways I try to justify myself by my accomplishments; help me to rest every day in your grace.
Amen.
(Prayer from "Seeking God's Face:Praying with the Bible Through the Year p.183)

Thanks James for this prayer. It reminds me of a quote from Contemplative Pastor by Eugene Peterson - http://kyeschung.com/i-am-busy-because-i-am-vain-i-want-to-appear/
