PRAYER OF COMMITMENT
"Father in heaven, I acknowledge that You know all things. I submit myself to You for service. Like Isaiah, I answer Your call. 'Lord, here am I, send me.'
I know You have shaped who I am today. You have given me this personality. You have blessed me with gifts, abilities, and passions. You have sovereignly directed every event, large and small, in my life. You have rejoiced at my victories and wept at my rebellion. You have never left my side; choosing instead, in Your infinite love and mercy, to enfold me in Your arms on every occasion.
I prayYou would use me to reach a unique group of people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Father, please still my heart, calm my fears, and reduce my excuses.
The time is short. The harvest is plentiful. Use me to enlarge Your kingdom.
May my stories of the King blend with every other story ever written about the King in order to bring a complete, accurate picture of You to the world. May I re-gift God's Word in such a way as to draw all men unto You, causing me to fade into the background and Your great heart to be revealed.
I quiet myself now to hear Your voice.
In the matchless Name of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus the Christ. Amen"
Do you have a service prayer that is all your own? This is mine, developed from a prayer used by my pastor in a worship service.
I encourage you to spend some time thinking about what you are called to, and then to craft your own, allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you. And when it's finished, make sure you write it or type it or paint it, and place it in a strategic location. Mine is taped to my laptop!
