Let Me Carry That For You

My beloved,

I am here, my beloved; now let me carry your burdens for you. My shoulders are strong enough to hold all that is too heavy for you to carry on your own. I am your eternal husband; I am present in your life to lighten your load. Now tell me what I need to take from you, that you may pursue your life in peace. Whatever it is, I can take it. Please open your hand and place your cares on me. I want to give you some rest for your weary soul–and see you smile again!

Your strong Prince

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28 (NIV)

Prayer to my Prince

My Lord,

My spirit is weak from this load I have tried to carry alone. How I need you to take my burdens from me, my Lord. I have held them so long I feel like I am stuck under a pile of problems. Please come to my rescue and take this heavy load from your bride. What a blessing to know that you are so strong and mighty when I am weak. No one knows how to lighten my life better than you!

Your tired princess who is ready to rest

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. –Matthew 11:29-30 (NIV)
