A prayer of belonging

 

Praying Psalm 73:21-15--

Oh Lord,

I realize that my heart is bitter.

I am all torn up inside.

I have been misguided and mislead

in my thoughts and conclusions.

Do I seem like a dumb animal to you?

Regardless of my limitations, you still want me.

I belong to you,

and you hold my hand tightly in yours.

Your words guide me,

your touch comforts me.

You guide me toward the glorious destiny of your design.

If I listen, you show me who I am

and what I can become in you.

Who else cares so much about me?

May I never forget that my words and actions are for you alone.

And you alone are my judge and my Redeemer.

I love you more than anyone or anything.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.


“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
