I share the following prayer on prayer cards that John Motschall of Michigan is so kind to print through his family ministry. For those who don’t have the chance to receive one at an event, here is my prayer not only for myself, but for you, too:
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you”–Jeremiah 1:5.
Father God, I pray that you help me to always remember that You are the creator and author of life. You knew me long before I was born or even conceived. You wrote the story of my life before I was living in it and you set out a purpose and a plan for me long ago.
Lord, help me to accept the person that you made me to be, blessings, difficulties, and all. Help me to recognize the plans and purpose for my life and to know there is no purpose too big or too small in this world, as you are the one who gave it to me…
