Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 (NIV) Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Matthew 11:28 (THE MESSAGE) Life is hard. And then it becomes harder. You w face tough times. Tough times turn into trying times. The journey becomes more difficult. No one is there to walk that dark lonesome valley with you. You can only walk it by yourself. You pray your heart out. You cry your eyes out. Nothing is left in you. Nothing seems to change and you don't kw what else to do. It's longer about what you don't kw, but who you do kw. Jesus is there to help you. No cry is too faint that He cant hear you and depth too deep that He cant find you. But what do you do when you just don't kw how to pray anymore? These prayers were written and prayed to Jesus, the burden bearer. No one cares for you more than Him. Talk to Jesus by reading these prayers aloud when you just don't kw what to say. They will help you begin a new journey that can lead you to a new dimension of praying and living. Use this book of prayers also as a journal to record what you pray in addition to the prayer written for that day. Jesus became your sin bearer. Allow Him to become your burden bearer. The valley won't be as dark. The burden will seem less heavy. And His presence will be a reminder that you are t alone.
