Knowing that God accepts us, warts and all, helps us breathe. This is a prayer from Brennan Manning, the Ragamuffin guy. I found it in Richard Foster’s book, Prayers from the Heart.
Today, O LORD, I accept your acceptance of me. I confess that you are always with me and always for me. I receive into my spirit your grace, your mercy, your care. I rest in your love, O Lord. I rest in your love. Amen.
