Daily Hope & a Prayer – April 26

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 New International Version (NIV)

Dear Father,

Thank you Lord for caring for me intimately. Thank you for designing me personally. I am blessed because I have been created in your own image. I pray that I would remain ever humbled by, and thankful for, that blessing.

Fill me with wisdom regarding the importance of having been created in your image. Help me to understand how this distinguishes me from all other types of created things and beings. Reveal your love for me, to me. Help me to see me as you see me.

I do not deserve to be so uniquely regarded, and can not be good or godly on my own. But you, Lord, have crafted and called me by your grace. Help me to remember that though i was created in the image of God, I am not god. But, because of your love, power, and the sacrifice of your Son I can know you and be close to you. Thank you for this, Lord.

Father, whether I am a man or woman, you love me and created me for a specific purpose, with individual gifts and callings. Reveal those gifts and callings to me. Help me to understand that I am your handiwork – precious, chosen, and loved.

Thank you for choosing and loving me.

In Jesus name I pray this. I love you.

Amen
