All-Knowing God, thank you that all you who are weary and burdened should come to you, and you will give rest. Your yoke is easy and your burden is light. Your word says that the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Lord, I have no confidence in my own righteousness but I am grateful that I stand before you clothed in Jesus’ righteousness. Please help me to pray for my needs knowing that my prayers are powerful and effective. You are the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God. To you be honor and glory forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
