Life-Giving God, you rested on the seventh day and made it holy.
You rose to life on the first day and declared new life for all.
We thank you for the gift of Sabbath rest in our lives:
Time and space where we may be still and know your presence.
Help us to find and treasure this time where you refresh, renew and re-create us,
so that we may be wholly the people you intend us to be.
In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
