To AdonaiLord of Lords, King of Kings – Master
I give my heart to you. I give my will to you. My ego, my emotions my body, my wants and desires I give to you. You are my owner and I am your slave.
Ask anything of me and I will do it for You provide the means to complete the task. I trust in you.
Each day I will empty my heart to you that I may hear your voice and obey you.
I honor you. I give you reign over my life, my marriage, my home, my family. They belong to you and I only have them for awhile.
I pray you use me to do your will. Create in me a servant’s heart ready to do whatever needs doing. By doing, by serving others, I serve you.
I don’t want these ink marks on paper to be empty words; sounds in the air with no heart or meat. I truly desire to serve you – to do your will – to do the next task before me. You know the intentions of my heart. You know how deep or shallow my commitment to you runs; how easily I am distracted by the cares of the day.
So I ask you to forgive me for careless words and actions. Cleanse me & refresh me. Make me holy & righteous before you. Love me and care for me even when I am slow to understand, rebellious or stubborn.
Only you have a right to me. As a person, a wife, a mother or grandmother, I belong to you! You fight my battles for me! You give me victory! You care for me!
May these written words be the truth in my life.
