Prayer of Surrender

Loving Father, I surrender to You today with all my heart and soul.  Please come into my heart in a deeper way.  I say “Yes” to You and say, “Come on in”.

Jesus, You are Lord of my whole life.  I believe in You and receive You as my Lord and Saviour.  I hold nothing back.

Holy Spirit, bring me to deeper conversion to the person of Jesus Christ.

I surrender all to You:  my health, my family, my resources, occupation, skills, relationships, time management, successes, and failures.  I release and let go.  I surrender my understanding of how things ought to be, my choices and my will.  I surrender to You the promises I have kept and the promises I have failed to keep.  I surrender my weaknesses and strengths to You.  I surrender my emotions, my fears, my insecurities, my sexuality. I especially surrender ____, ____, and ____.

(Continue to surrender other areas as the Holy Spirit reveals them to you.)

Lord, I surrender my entire life to You, the past, the present, and the future. In sickness and in health, in life and in death, I belong to You.  Amen

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place in the chapel most Fridays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.  Come spend some quiet time with the Lord!
