Help us to rest and rejuvenate well dear Lord. You have created us just perfect and intended to use us for your plan and kingdom. May we and our children use this vacation to unwind, spend time together and re-energize our body and soul. We pray that you in your infinite wisdom, loving God, will help us take time off from office work, studies, tensions and deadlines, and will help us come closer to you, our family and friends.
May this rest lead to a better us and to qualitative improvement in our work and life. May this vacation be seen as an opportunity to reach out to everyone we have left out in our march to excellence. Nudge us to feel you God in togetherness and be assured of your ceaseless presence in our lives. In the name of the risen Christ we pray. Amen.
