Heavenly Father, we pray for Melbourne and Victoria that the spread of this terrible virus will halt. Give the Premier and the government wisdom in decision making. Protect health workers and those in the frontline. We bring before you the residents and staff in nursing homes that the spread of the virus will be curtailed.

Rest for body and soul
There’s nothing quite so freeing as floating in the sea or a swimming pool, weightless, suspended in waters of rest. Our bodies regularly need to recuperate from stress and strain. So too our souls for they are an integral part of who we are and need care and attention. Souls are, after all, doing vitally important work; sorting out our life choices, connecting with the Source and Creator of our being. They too suffer from Love fatigue and need rest and re-creation. A dose of aimless wandering, contemplating a child, or listening to sacred music is REST indeed.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters; = waters of rest
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long. Psalm 23, 1-2, 6
Change of living habits also bring rest. In Myanmar, mothers at the MU Parenting program learnt to be more patient and caring towards with their children. This has produced a rest from friction for the whole family: children work better at school and husband/wife relationships have improved. The still waters of Rest bring calm.
Thanks be to God.
