A Noonday Prayer for an Afternoon Nap
O Lord, our Eternal rest and Potentate of time, open our schedules this afternoon for light and easy rest. Calm our spirits and meditate our minds on your return and coming rule, so that our cares would be situated amid a greater story. Do this for us this day, and so prepare us for a setting sun whose light and warmth moves to awaken the rest of your creation. Provide for us a dull moment that we would be prepared to rest this evening and awaken tomorrow with strength and industry. Amen.
