There’s nothing like that look of disapproval from someone across the room to make your knees shake and your lip quiver. Or maybe there’s no look of disapproval, but you expect one at every corner because your confidence is lacking and your insecurity soaring. After preparing 10 Bible Verses for when you feel “not good enough” several weeks ago, today I felt led to pray for you. Well, after I’ve prayed a prayer for when you feel not good enough myself. May Jesus be our confidence!

Dear Jesus,

When I look at the glory of Your creation,

my mind fills with admiration

and my heart fills with wonder.

How could I applaud all of Your work

and fail to recognize it in my own life?

I forget that You’ve changed me.

That You loved me when no one else did.

And You love me when no one else does.

That You, the most High God, chase after me

because I am important to You.

Help me remember You have a work to do

In me. And through me.

Please help me to see just how precious

I am to You.

That You started a good work in my heart

And You’ve promised to complete it.

May I boldly embrace each opportunity

to reveal Your divine design.
