God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. (James 4:6)

Lord, forgive me for anytime I have felt insignificant and wondered if You knew or cared that I exist. Forgive me for ever doubting whether You would hear my prayers or if You would really answer them. For I have found that You do care and You do hear and You do answer. Just as You revealed Yourself to the humble shepherds in Bethlehem, I pray that You would reveal Yourself to me. Just as You led them to a close encounter with You, I pray that You would enable me to see You more closely too. Because You announced the great news of Jesus’ birth to the most humble people on earth, I see that no life is without significance in Your eyes. And no matter how isolated we are, how outcast from society we feel, or how lowly and unworthy we see ourselves, You see us as having value. Thank You that even when I am merely doing the most menial and mundane job, You will meet me right where I am and extend Your love and grace to me.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
