God, how could you possible notice me?

Prayer  |  July 2

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.

Psalm 8:3-5

Father, as we look upon the beauty of Your creation, we are overwhelmed at the breadth and depth of the universe and both humbled and overjoyed as we see our children, created in Your image, born. The purity of a child is a representation of Your perfect will for us. Give us the faith and purity of a child as we seek to be as You Jesus.

Your creation, given to us as a gift, is a testimony of Your omniscience. As we contemplate our place in the universe, we have a hard time understanding how You can know and love each of us. We often underestimate how complete Your understanding is.

You tell us that our lives count, that You notice our trials and triumphs. You have crowned Your children with glory and honor. Help us as parents to be as hopeful for our children as You are for us. Bless each of us and all of our loved ones this day, we pray. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
