Praised be Your Name! I praise You for Your wisdom and for Your love. In You, we find our identity and in You we are made whole. I thank You for instructing us on how to carry ourselves and prioritize our thoughts. You know the quiet whispers of our hearts, our doubts and even our vain pursuits and You haven’t neglected to teach us on any area of life. I thank You that You have defined beauty for us and through various examples, You have shown us what is beautiful in Your sight.
Father, make us reach new levels of beauty. Help us to place our eternal and internal beauty first and to cultivate a quiet and gentle spirit. Help us to love others with the same love that You’ve shown us. Father, I pray that we teach the next generation these truths. Make us good examples before them, teaching them to value the beauty in them that does not fade over time. Rise us up to lead lives that honor You and may we grow more and more beautiful through the eyes of You who have made us and loved us.
Father, I pray for those of us who struggle with their image. Place godly people in their lives who will show them how beautiful and important they are to You. Guide them in the study of Your Word and assure them of Your unfading love.
In Jesus’ Glorious Name,
