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).

You look

deep inside me

every day.

Every thought.

Every fear.

Every worry.

Every secret.

And you invite me to tell it all to you.

Thank you, Lord, 

for loving me and seeing me.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.
