Heavenly Father, what a blessing it is to be known by You!
You knew us even before we were conceived,
planning everything from the color of our eyes
and our favorite foods
to our hopes and dreams.
We can’t even begin to comprehend Your knowledge.
Thank You for ordering our steps, and for always knowing
just what we need and when we need it.
We confess that we don’t always recognize Your blessings.
We also confess that we refuse some of them.
We arrogantly think we know better, and so we go our own way.
Forgive us for that, Lord.
Help us to recognize Your gifts and blessings,
and gratefully receive them,
even though they might not be what we want.
You know what’s best for us, and
we trust what You’re doing in our lives.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
