A prayer for when you're overlooked
Oh, my Lord,
Do you see me,
even when people ignore me?
You value me,
even when someone overlooks me.
You elevate me,
even when someone puts me down.
You lead me,
even when no one invites me to follow them.
You dream for me,
even when I can't dream for myself.
You're pleased with me,
even when I feel guilty, ashamed, and unworthy.
You forgive me,
even when my actions are unpardonable.
You love me
just the way I am and regardless of what I do.
You aren't swayed by people's perception of me
or even my perspective of myself.
You know me because you formed me.
And you have something unique for me to do
that nobody else can do like I could (in your power).
deep inside me
And you invite me to tell it all to you.
Thank you, Lord,
for loving me and seeing me.
In Jesus' name,
“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!: (Isaiah 49:15-16)
