To finish off our Praying God’s Names series… let us end with a renewed focus on all that our great Father is. We have learned and praised Him, begged Him, honored Him over this summer. Now let us commit to Him as never before!
A Prayer of Commitment
Father God, my Creator, What is your purpose for my life? Why was I born? Why am I here? Your Word says I am created in your image and for your glory. Your Word also says I am created by your will and for your pleasure.
Lord, by your power alone, I live for you. By your Holy Spirit, I reflect your holiness, goodness, mercy and grace. Your light, shining through me, reveals your loving kindness and sacrifice to the world.
I rest in you. May my life give you honor and glory. Let me “die to self” and live each second through you. You have my heart – I gave it to you when a child. Now I surrender all of me to you. Use me, all of me. Take all of my knowledge, talents and gifts for your kingdom. Be my strength and courage as I face each day. Give me boldness to show others what you have given me, and more than that, show who you are.
I love you, my creator, because you have loved me with an everlasting love. I serve you, Father, to do your will and give you pleasure
