Spirit of God, You call us precious. You call us honored. You call us loved. Help us see what you see. Empower us to look upon our own image with ongoing, daily compassion. Strengthen us to pay attention to the voices inside our own minds and offer them the gift of gentle grace. May our increasing capacity to love our own reflection compel us to look upon the rest of your creation with the same heart. Thank you for our forever identity in You. Amen.
This prayer was excerpted from the August 2018 Cafe article by Emily Anne Carson, “Our identity: precious, honored, loved.” Today is New Year’s Eve.
