God, As Wednesdays end I have hope for the strength to finish strong. I can do this, not in my own strength but through you. The relationships at work and in our evening activities can discourage me.
I long for deep friendships centered on and focused on you. It can feel so lonely walking this path when it seems everyone around me is seeking their own worldly passions and desires. Bedtime and reflecting on the day can increase that feeling of loneliness. Comfort me tonight knowing I am never alone with you.
As I prepare to go to sleep, I pray for deep rest tonight. Thank you for the promise that you have given me rest for my soul.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

You have called me to this position at work, and have called me to be a light for you while I’m there. Sometimes the burdens of all of that feels heavy. But you are so good to remind us that in you there is rest. Help me to understand this more and rest in you.
So now, let my mind be quieted. There were many conversations and tasks that could loop through my thoughts but I surrender them all to you now as I lay my head to rest. I trust that if I need to handle anything specific in the morning that you will bring it to mind again tomorrow.
I pray all of this and trust in your love for me, this day and every day, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
