On this Sabbath, rest in God’s arms and enjoy some quiet.

Lord, when we are tempted to set our mind on human things instead of divine things, gently correct us and align our hearts with your will.  May we understand what it is to pick up our cross and follow you.  May we understand deep within our bones that we are called to love God and love one another – to walk with and even suffer with our brothers and sisters out of love and compassion.  Make us your disciples.  In Christ’s name we pray, AMEN.

Close with the Lord’s Prayer and/or the Doxology:

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise God you creatures here below.
Praise God above, you heavenly hosts.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
