Make and keep me aware
that life is bigger than I am,
that the universe is bigger than I can grasp,
that reality is bigger than I can comprehend.
Use my awareness of my smallness
to keep me in my place.
Make and keep me aware that in spite of—
and perhaps because of—my smallness,
you love me and watch over me.
Thank you that in Jesus Christ you entered
into my place and into my smallness.
Use my awareness of your grace
to make me grateful that you are with me
right where I am and just as I am.
