A Prayer to Claim One’s Worth Before the Lord

A Prayer to Claim One’s Worth Before the Lord 

Dear Lord, here I am before you. 

It is me as you know me through and through.

I cannot hide anything from you.

I cannot utter a word which you still do not know.

I cannot ask you or plead you in a way more profound than your knowledge of me.

Yet, I come to you as I am – a sinner, an imperfect being, as simply as I am.

 

I thank you and I claim my worth before you.

I have the courage to present myself right here because your love makes me worth more than anything.

I am worth more than I can think of myself, or others can attest for me.

I am worth more than my past, my present or my future.

I am worth more than I can do or cannot do.

I am me because of your love.

I am me because of your unconditional love.

Your love heals me. 

Your love washes my sins away.

Your love redirects me through the path that is best for me.

 

Lord, I have my worth because of your priceless love.

I am made whole because of your invincible love.

When I look at myself, I am tempted to judge and to be harsh.

But when I look at myself before you, I can only succumb to the power of your gentle love.

You are my God who will never take away my worth.

You are my God who will place me on a pedestal and love me,

never a single moment less, but more and more and more.

 

And so, always and before you, I claim that I am most loved and I am worthy…

because I am Yours.
