Prayer after reading Psalm 8

Heavenly Father, I thank you today and love you because you are awesome! Your name is excellent in all the heavens and the earth, and your love for us is tremendous. Lord, we thank you because we are nothing, and yet in your grace, you disagree. You’ve laid everything at our feet and given us dominion over all the earth, and with that dominion, we’ve gotten too full of ourselves and too proud! We’ve taken you for granted and turned away from you many times, and yet your grace always found us. You never forsook us. Lord, who are we that you are mindful of us? Why do you love us so? Oh, Lord, teach us to be more appreciative of that love and of the love that we get from others in our lives. Let us not take it for granted. Though we can never earn it, teach us to dedicate our lives to you as if we can. Bless us as we do this and as we strive to please you in all that we say, or do, and even think in the name of your son Jesus, our Messiah. Amen
