Thank you for coming down from heaven to earth
to the world you made,
the people you created,
misunderstood, isolated, abused, and suffering at our hands,
shedding your blood
and giving up your life
to be our perfect sacrifice
to do away with the power of sin and death forever and ever,
setting me free to believe and live.
Thank you for making the way,
the path clear to enter heaven
to the Father’s heart
where I belong and find rest for my soul.
Grant me the grace to lose myself,
lose my life, lose my all for your sake,
that I may find life,
to lay down my flesh, my chaotic emotions, my unwieldy passions
to follow you and serve you.
I am yours and my life is not my own,
it is yours, all yours,
let me decrease that you may increase,
and would your Spirit arise within me
filling me with power, love, and a sound mind.
Lord, it’s not about me anymore,
would you show me your heart and thoughts,
your will, purposes, and your ways?
Grant me your vision,
boldness, faith, courage,
determination, diligence, and persistence,
strength and power by the Spirit
to do the works you’ve called me to do.
Thank you for your ever present help, support, and fellowship,
I am not alone.
Let your eyes run to and fro through the earth,
and please let me be found worthy to be used by you.
I bless you Lord,
you alone are God and worthy of all my praise.
