Dear God, it will be a busy weekend.
There will be joy in kids and activities and parties and baptisms and singing.
There will be cake.
There will be laundry.
There will be exhaustion.
I pray for sabbath minutes- little rests that reveal your presence.
I ask for sabbath openness- little spaces that allow for rest.
I hope for sabbath peace- little quiets that restore a sense of wholeness to my soul.
In the hours activity to come, God, I pray for sabbath minutes during which I can honor and feel my connection to you.
