Help Me to Surrender: A Liturgical prayer

 

Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
   See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting. (Psalm 139:23-24)

 

When my heart begins to race because circumstances overwhelm

Help me to Surrender

When my thoughts quickly evolve into fearful images

Help me to Surrender

When my tongue races to lash out with hurtful words

Help me to Surrender

When my hands quickly navigate to grasp for control

Help me to Surrender

When the words forming in my mind prevent my ears from hearing

Help me to Surrender

When I fail to trust you with circumstances outside of my sphere

Help me to Surrender

I surrender all,
I surrender all;
All to Thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all. (From the Hymn “I Surrender All by Judson Van Deventer)

    This is good, Stephanie. I think I’m going to click “print” and put this somewhere I can see it regularly. Lord, help me to surrender all to You.
