A Prayer of Surrender
I come before you with focused heart.
How can I begin to express my gratitude
for your great love for me?
The depths of your love are so wide
And so deep… and so long
That I can only attempt to understand the vastness.
While my mind can’t comprehend Your greatness in entirety,
My heart’s desire is to follow Your lead.
Every step and every corner,
I surrender to Your plan, no matter where it leads.
While I haven’t always been so willing,
I’m renewing my vows to you, Lord.
I beg you to take me and use me as only you can.
No matter the time or place.
It truly is my joy to say
Your will. Your way.
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
