Today, O Lord, I yield myself to you.
May your will be my delight today.
May your way have perfect sway in me.
May your love be the pattern of my living.
I surrender to you my hopes, my dreams, my ambitions.
Do with them what you will, when you will, as you will.
I place into your loving care my family, my friends, my future.
Care for them with a care that I can never give.
I release into your hands my need to control, my craving for status, my fear of obscurity.
I lay down my resentments, I offer to you my fears and trust you with what I don’t understand.
Eradicate the evil, purify the good, and establish your kingdom on earth, starting with my heart.
In Jesus Name,
Amen
