O glorious God, in these beautiful words of your son, Jesus, we find hope in the midst of this troubled world. Matthew 12: 28-30 “Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you should find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” O how we thank you for giving us your son to teach us a better way of life. He gives meaning to our lives, even when we do not see our worth at all. In Jesus holy name, I pray. Amen.
