“Come to me all you who are weary and heavily burdened and I will give you rest.”
Matt 11:28 NIV
Gracious God, we offer you our praise. May we come to you today with grateful and thankful hearts for the many blessings in our lives.  Forgive us for those times when we fail to express our gratitude to you and to others. We take a moment to quieten and still our minds, to thank you, and to leave any worries or anxieties with you ……
It is for freedom
That christ has set us free.
I come to you Lord Jesus,
Lift the yoke from me.
You carry every burden,
Every hurt, every wrong.
I release them to you Jesus,
Your love has become my song.
You took the weight on calvary,
Your hands and feet were pierced.
Your love broke the chains of bondage,
Forgave, renewed, dried our tears.
I come to you Lord Jesus,
In trust love and praise.
May I receive all you offer,
And serve you all my days.
Gracious God, we thank you that you carry the weight of our burdens. Help us to leave them with you. May we have hearts that are gentle, humble and full of praise and gratitude.  We pray for anyone carrying a heavy load today, that they may receive help and find rest in Jesus.  Amen.
