Prayer When You Don’t Feel Good Enough

El Shaddai, Lord God Almighty, when I look at how fearfully and wonderfully YOU have designed all creation, it fills my mind with admiration. Even when I don’t feel good enough, I wonder how do I even begin to glorify and magnify You enough for Your magnificent masterpieces.

Sometimes I fail to recognize Your Glorious workings in my own life, Lord. But, open my eyes, so I can see the great and wonderful things You have done in my life.

1 Corinthians 6:20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

When No One Cared

You have clearly demonstrated change in my life, Oh Heavenly Father. You have molded and shaped me. And so, I relinquish all feelings of unworthiness and inadequacy to You. I affirm Your love for me and Your call on my life. I declare that I am good enough, not because of anything I’ve done, but because of who You are and what You’ve done for me.

You have loved me beyond measure from day one, even in those moments when no one else cared to be there for me. You continually watch over me Lord, even when I go astray and wander off, like lost sheep.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

Embracing The Grace Of God

Heavenly Father, Your grace is the reason I can stand before You. It’s not my deeds, not my words, not my thoughts, but Your grace alone that declares me worthy.

Sometimes, Lord, I forget this and find myself striving to earn Your favor. I work tirelessly to meet the impossible standards set by society, or even by myself, only to be met with disappointment and fatigue.

I ask, Lord, for a fresh revelation of Your grace. Help me to rest in the work of Christ, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Let this grace fill me with peace, providing the confidence to move forward in life, knowing that I don’t have to be perfect because I am loved by a perfect God.

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Shifting The Focus To God’s Strength

Oh Lord, it’s so easy for me to focus on my weaknesses, my shortcomings, and my mistakes. These are the things that take away my confidence, when I don’t feel good enough. But today, I choose to shift my focus to Your strength, Your perfection, and Your unchanging love for me.

Your strength is made perfect in my weakness, and I thank You for the privilege of serving You despite my imperfections. Holy Spirit, guide me into all truth, and help me to walk in the identity bestowed upon me as a child of God.

Remind me daily that my worth is found in You and not in the opinions of others. Rekindle a spirit of faith and courage within me, enabling me to step out of my comfort zone, to face challenges and to seize opportunities that align with Your will.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Romans 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

When I Don’t Feel Good Enough

At those times Lord, when I don’t feel good enough, help me to remember that You are continually working with me and through me. May I recognize my true worth and value, especially when others put me down. No weapon formed against me shall prosper!

Help me to realize how precious I am in Your sight. You have already started a good work in my heart, Lord and it shall be completed! May I boldly embrace each opportunity to reveal Your divine design. Lift my spirit this day, Oh Lord and fill my heart with joy. In Jesus’ wonderful name I pray, Amen!!!

Psalm 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.
