August 5 – Evening


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.

(Matthew 11:29)


Dear God,

You have said in Your Word, “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.” (this verse) I come before You now with a humble heart, seeking rest for my soul. Help me to take on Your yoke and learn from You, so that I may find true peace and rest in You. Teach me to be gentle and humble in heart, just as You are, so that I may reflect Your character to those around me.

I acknowledge that I cannot find rest for my soul on my own, but only through Your grace and guidance. Help me to trust in You and surrender to Your will, knowing that You are the source of all peace and rest. Thank You for Your love and compassion, and for always being there to guide and comfort me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
