Loving Father, thank you that you are my creator, you made me and you love me. As I feel overwhelmed with the barriers that stand in my way, may my eyes be lifted to behold your power and glory. You are the God who holds the stars in your hand and yet you reach down to bless me. May I see your all-conquering power at work. May I rejoice in your glorious victory, may I praise your majestic name. May I live as your beloved child, receiving your everlasting kindness. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
