I was looking over some old writing files and found the following prayer. Thought I’d share it here, in case someone found it helpful!
Sometimes I feel swamped by the expectations of others.
I don’t fit into their ready-made boxes.
I frequently feel misunderstood.
But you know me – you understand me.
Wherever I go, you are there with me.
You give me worth and identity and purpose.
Help me not to forget that, and give me courage
when the world does not understand.
In Jesus’ name,
