Lord, as this new season of my life is unfolding, I pray that You would recreate me. I pray that You would give me Your eyes so that I can see this life the way You do, that You would give me Your heart so that I will be able to know Your desires and abide in Your will. Give me Your hands to touch the lives of Your people, and mostly Lord give me Your love.
Lord, Equip me with Your Loving qualities. I desire to learn to love the way You do. I want to build up Your church. I want to direct people to praise You. I want my life to reflect the greatness that You are. I never want to receive the glory that belongs to You. Lord, I want to live like Paul did. In suffering much he praised You so much. Every trial resulted in joy and a growth in faith.
I want to have a heart for Your people. I really want to love so greatly. My nature doesn’t know true love. I am such a self-centered creature. My mind loves to think about what I want, what’s best for me, how I can receive glory and fulfillment. Teach me Your ways, teach me step by step. Send my nature packing. I want to cry with those that are crying, laugh with those that are laughing, mourn with those that are mourning. I want to become all things for all, that I may save some.
Let me feel the pain of this world. Give me this wake up call. I want to have a bigger heart for this world.I want an insight on what they need. I want to live as a sacrifice. I’ll give my time, my heart, my life, my gifts(your gifts) to the building up and saving of some. You have given me ALL things. I want to give them back to You. Use them at Your will. Use me! I have nothing to offer and how great that is! For You will receive the glory. I trust that You will equip me with all things needed in this season.
I’m vowing to give You all of me. All my belongings, all my life, all my soul, all of my time. You have every right to transform me into whoever You will me to be. I will go wherever You send me. If you send me to the darkest saddest part of the city to reach the lost I will go. If you send me to the wise of this world I trust that you will equip me with Your knowledge that shames the wise.
I trust You, Honor You, respect You. I take this leap of faith with no hesitation. I am ready and willing to do Your will. Lord, if my dreams and desires never come to pass so that someone else can receive their dreams, I freely give mine up! I want to think less of me. I want to starve my selfish flesh and instead feed the homeless, hug the lonely, and hold the broken.
Lord, You are the only one who knows my desires. You know my biggest fears. You know my every thought. You know every hair on my head. You know me inside and out. You know how big my desires are of getting married and having children. If I never receive them because You don’t want those distractions holding me back, I give them to You. I have wanted to hold onto these desires so tightly. Not even for a second loosening my grip. But Lord, I lay them before Your throne as an offering. I give you my best. I give you the biggest of my dreams.
Your will is my will. My future is in Your hands. Send me ANYWHERE! I won’t let my dreams, fears, and desires stand in the way of Your will any longer. Send me to all ends of this earth if it be Your will. Send me into scary dark places if even for one lost child. For Your love is for every lost child. If no one else will go I will! I raise my hands in willingness! I give up! I’m lay myself flat on the floor in honor of You. For I have nothing. I am nothing. But You have everything. You are everything.
Lord, if you take away my every blessing to bring me to someone who needs you I won’t look back. I’ll drop all I have and run with You the race set before me. Lord, Help me to keep pace with You. Don’t let my feet step outside Your path. Don’t let me rush Your pace or slow You down. Carry me when I am lacking in drive, restrain me when I try to take the lead, and hold my hand all the way through! I need your love. I need you! No one can compare to You! No one loves me like You! You are the only Faithful One. I can lean on You always. You are able always. You are always! You’re forever! You are the great I AM, and You never change.And this is why I will follow. This is why I will praise You! This is why I love You.
Lord, I send my life up to you in a sweet and pleasing aroma. I pick up my cross so that I may walk with you. Lord I will choose to always raise my hands to you in praise. Constantly relying on you. Consistently letting you show me the way. Never equipping myself. Lord I will lead a life of worship. I will point to you. I will rely on your power and strength to hold me together. I will sing of Your unfailing Love, Your grace, Your work on the cross, Your promises, Your Plans, Your fulfillments. I will sing of You always. I will shout Your praise into the night. I will sing of Your love in the presence of the lost! I will humble my heart and let my image be the reflection of You. I don’t want people to look and see me. I went them to be blinded by YOU, Caught in the Light of You, Stunned by Your nature, and confounded by Your endless Love.
So in closing Lord, I give You my everything, I will love You with my everything, I will listen to Your calling, I will sing Hallelujah, I will worship You with my life, and Let Your love pour out into all aspects of my life. I am willing. I have nothing to hold me back, but everything to look forward to! I am so in love with You, I AM!
