 Prayer of Surrender
Lord, I am so miserable inside
From You, I cannot run and hide
Draw me ever closer to Your side

I am tired of doing things my way
Continually failing You each day
How could I be so foolish and stray?

There is a battle raging in my soul
Fleshly desires want to gain control
Only Your Spirit can make me whole

Humbly, with a heart of submissiveness
I admit to You my pride and selfishness
Asking for Your mercy and forgiveness

I give my life in total surrender to You
Desiring to follow and obey in all I do
With only You to lead and guide me too

Teach me to walk by faith and not sight
To listen to Your voice, do what is right
Knowing I am secure walking in the Light
Fill me anew with the Holy Spirit's fire
Until Your will is my one and only desire
Keep me safe from the enemy who is a liar

Whatever challenges in life I will face
I am powerless apart from Your grace
Strengthen me to faithfully run the race

Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live,
but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body,
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and
gave himself for me.
