A Prayer for Smallness

I wake today to things ultimate: Your Word and Your work.

Your Word sustains a splintering universe: In Him all things hold together.

Your Word ratifies the beauty of creation: And God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, it is high; I cannot attain it.

I wake today to what is ultimate but shrink before the impossibilities of finding smallness and rousing to worship: Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.

I confess that I am proud and self-sufficient, working more fervently than I pray. Have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.

I confess that I am anxious and worried, failing to find in You my provision. Have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.

I confess that I am distracted, neglecting the priorities of Your kingdom come, Your will be done. Have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.

I confess that I hoard glory and love the praise of others. Have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.

I confess that even my service and sacrifice are corrupted with self-love. Have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.

I am the chief of sinners. Have mercy on me, according to your unfailing love.

Grant me repentance, for I am saved by grace.

Form in me the humility and love of Christ, who made Himself nothing.

Make beautiful my life’s breath, a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You.

If  only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Today, I worship You as Creator God; You are Infinite and Ultimate.

Today, under the sky and by your grace, I find myself small.

And the truth shall set me free.
