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.
