How to pray for endurance when you're wiped out

Lord Jesus, I'm so, so tired . You understand why and how and what's next. Please help me to endure with patience the task you've called me to. Your will doesn't seem attainable. I'm insecure and unsettled . I'm overwhelmed and uneasy. I don't know how to endure . I just want rest. And I want answers. Please fill me with your power instead of my own. Build my faith during this weary time. Take this emptiness  and use it to glorify yourself. It will be so obvious that you alone are at work through my life. I am incapable of greatness. You alone satisfy my desire, and you alone can create something meaningful out of weakness . Forgive me for trying to accomplish things in my own strength. Thank you for this exhaustion . I give it to you and ask you to resurrect me. In Jesus' name and because He is LIFE, Amen.

You can have all of me

Lord, You can have all of me. My self-image, my dreams, my family, my career, my pain, my fear, my plans,  my secret places. I surrender. All of it. I give it to you. It belongs to you, anyway, because I belong to you. I don't know why I keep pulling this all back on me. It weighs me down, clouds my thinking, discourages and scares me. I am weary from the burden of it. You want to carry it for me. You want to carry me. So you can have me back again. Again and again and every time I forget and pull this all on myself. Again and again. I love you. I trust you. I need you. Amen. “Come to me,  all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you 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 11:28-30 For more prayers about this, click below: "When you want to quit praying" "What to pray
