God, You know everything and have always been,

I have a birthday and know so very little.

You are strong and hold everything together,

I am weak and my world often falls apart.

I desire Your character to be manifest in me.

 Your promises are sure and Your mercy is great.

I cannot trust myself to stand or keep my word.

You are the One who sparks joy and rejoicing in me.

I pray my life will cause You to smile and be happy.
