A Collect to Receive Rest

Gracious Father, who knows our limitations, give us rest while you tarry in your business, that we would not strive needlessly or be tormented by our anxiety, but would find and accept the sleep we need, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives with you and the Holy Spirit in glory. Amen. ‘ As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept.’ – Matthew 25:5
