God doesn’t want you to do more for him. God longs to love you deeper.
Jesus longs to refresh and take care of you. Jesus invites you to simply come and rest – so he can whisper words of love and rest to you – to fill you His peace and presence.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.” Matt 11:28
We often struggle with prayer because we don’t know what to say or our hearts feel stuck. But, prayer isn’t just about what you can do or say to God.
Prayer is about being present. Prayer is about receiving the peace and joy you need – that God wants to supply for you. Freely. Again and again. Prayer is rest.
After a three years to write it, my new book Whispers of Rest: 40 Days of God’s Love to Revitalize Your Soul is releasing next Tuesday, May 23! Here are 3 Powerful Prayers quoted from the book to refresh the your soul!

Prayer #1: Rest and Breathe
Sip a cup of tea or coffee & breathe with God today. Are you tea or coffee lover?
Prayer is like sharing an intimate moment of quiet with a loved one. No words are needed. Research shows that even the act of brewing tea and simply the aroma of coffee is mood lifting!
So, you don’t have to say a word. Take a sip of coffee or tea today and breathe, receiving the prayer Jesus is praying for you!
Scriptures tell us Jesus is praying for you.
“Who then is the one who condemns? No one.
Christ Jesus who died–more than that, who was raised to life…
is also interceding for us.” Romans 8:34
?Give yourself permission to be God’s beloved every day.
Prayer #2: Journal
Instead of struggling to reach Jesus, invite Jesus to enter your world. Research in a NY Times article shows the power of writing your personal story can lead to behavioral changes and improve happiness. Even 15 minutes of expressive writing makes a difference.
“For the word of God is living and active…
It penetrates dividing soul and spirit..” Hebrews 4:11-12
The “word” is the Greek word logos—translated as living voice. God is not limited to the written word. God uses everything living to speak into our lives. This includes journaling.
Where will you journal today?
Prayer #3: Remember
“I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3
Drink in these beautiful words from God’s heart to yours. Simply think on a favorite Bible verse that has encouraged you in the past. Remember how God is whispering His words of love to you again today,
✨ Share with a friend who needs to hear these loving words of encouragement. Be God’s loving voice and presence on her journey today.
