A simple prayer is all it takes to connect with God everyday. And if you don’t know how to pray, no worries! We’ve got you covered. Check out this simple prayer below to get started!

I Am Too Tired

“I am too tired”—you might be too tired to focus, too tired to sleep, too tired to “catch up” on all the things you mean to do. It’s the kind of deep-seated exhaustion that only sets in after burning at both ends for so many days, weeks, months in a row.

And despite your best attempt to clear space in your schedule and get enough sleep at night, you can’t seem to shake the exhaustion.

Here’s a gentle little reminder for today: take a deep breath, tired friend. You don’t have to will yourself into working from a store of energy that you don’t have. But you do have an invitation—an open door to come to God, your refuge, and to find rest in him.

A Prayer for Exhaustion

Lord, my refuge, you renew my strength, and I can find rest under the shadow of your wings. Grant me grace for the rest of my day, and give me the gift of deep sleep tonight. Tomorrow, help me wake up in your new mercies, and to focus on serving you and others with the strength you give me for tomorrow. And help me to trust that you’ll keep giving me enough strength, one day at a time. Amen.

Scripture: Psalm 91:1-4
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’ Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
