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.
