Prayer

Here I am

“Here I am” (1 Samuel 3:5; NLT).

O God, you know how foolish I am; my sins cannot be hidden from you (Psalm 69:5; NLT).

For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust (Psalm 103:14; NLT).

You know of my shame, scorn and disgrace (Psalm 69:19; NLT).

You know everything I do (Psalm 130:3; NLT).

…he knows the secrets of every heart (Psalm 44:21; NLT).


Lord,
Here I am,
With all my sins
And weaknesses,
My ill-health,
And anxieties,
Low self-esteem,
Depression,
And my painful awkwardness
In social situations.

Please forgive,
And heal,
And help me,
Through and through.

Thank you for loving me,
And living in my heart,
Despite all that I am,
And all I’m not

Or perhaps because of it –
For only you know fully
Why I need your help
So much.
