A Prayer for the Weary

A Prayer for the Weary

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. -Matthew 11:28


Wherever you are

however you feel

take a moment

drop to your knees

take a deep breath

lay down

go for a walk

offer a prayer

open your bible

To me

I am waiting for you

I am always with you

I love you

I offer peace and grace and hope

I give forgiveness 

All you who are weary and burdened

Whatever you are carrying – 

pain, anger, sadness, grief, doubt, worry, loneliness, uncertainty, brokenness

nothing is too heavy. 

And I will give you rest. 

You are mine, my beloved, my child

in my arms you are safe

you are held. 

you are never alone.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
