I thank You Lord, that because of Your grace and mercy, You are the giver of good gifts.

I thank You Lord that Your Holy Spirit dispels chaos and fear everywhere He goes.

I ask You Lord, to forgive me for the times in my life that I have purposefully chosen chaos and anxiety rather than asking You to deal with my worries and fears.

I repent for the times in my life when I have not accepted Your rest, but instead have invited stress, disorganization and confusion.

Forgive me, Lord, for anyone I may have hurt by my words and behaviors when I was under stress and swimming in chaos. I ask You to bless those I may have hurt and place them under the shadow of Your wings.

As a member of my family line I repent for all those who used drugs, alcohol or medications to force rest upon their bodies and spirits rather than turning to You.

As a member of my family line I repent for all those who although they knew You, chose pride and selfish ambition over surrender to Your Sabbath rest.

In the name of Jesus I break, shatter, cut-off, dissolve and destroy all ungodly frequency vibrations, lay lines, tubes and mechanisms that have prevented my brain from receiving your rest. Father please tune my brain to Your heartbeat.

Father, in Jesus name please seal all ungodly dimensions and open up the godly dimensions that lead to You and the revelation of Your purposes in my life.

I declare that You give only light burdens. I welcome Your gentle touch upon my life.

In the name of Jesus, I break, shatter, cut-off, dissolve and destroy the behaviors in my life that have prevented me from observing Your Sabbath rest and remembering Your healing touch.

Father, in the name of Jesus, please come into my brain and transform any thoughts that are not pleasing to You. Seal all cracks in my brain that have allowed chaos and fear to enter.

I thank You Lord, and bless Your name because you carry my problems and teach me to depend on You. Teach me about the peace and joy of Your Sabbath rest.

In the name of Jesus I accept quietness into my heart.

Thank You Lord that You are the God of rest!
