A prayer of surrender
Rachael writes: I came across this beautiful prayer this week and wanted to share it.
A prayer of surrender by Richard Foster.
Today, O Lord, I yield myself to you.
May your will be my delight today.
May you 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.
Eradicate the evil, purify the good, and establish your kingdom on earth.
For Jesus’ sake. Amen.
