Dear Lord, I have come to recognise and accept that my heart’s desire is to serve You, from this day forward, with every part of my being - to present my body as a living sacrifice unto You for the rest of my life. Lord I know that this is a big step to take and few will understand… and I know that I can only take this step of faith in the power of Your Holy Spirit living in and working through me.
Lord I want to offer my life to You, to use as You will and I pray Lord that You would use me body, soul and spirit to Your praise and glory. May I be willing to go where You lead, even when it is not what I expected - and keep teach and train me I pray, to live and move and work and expend my life entirely for Your service.. relying on You and resting on the promises of Your word.
Let me also be willing Lord to follow Your guidance in the area of relationships – may I be willing and able to live for the rest of my life in my current state of singleness – but also may I be willing and open to Your guidance, should You choose otherwise.. Lord into Your hands I commit my future life for I desire to live as You deem best, in the place of Your choosing and in whatever state that You choose for me.
Teach me Lord to listen to the promptings of Your voice, so that I may live by faith and not by sight. Lord I want to please You and I know that without faith it is impossible to please You – so give me I pray faith that honours You. I know in my heart that you desire all Your children to live by faith —trusting Your word and acting upon it without questioning or hesitation – and so I pray that my faith in You may stand the test of time, and withstand the enemies of doubt and unbelief - to Your praise and glory.
Lord may all I say and do and am from this day forward be pleasing in Your sight and may You be glorified through my life, in Jesus name I pray,
