Oh Lord, as I stand before you tonight, I ask again to be changed.
Only you know what needs to be done. I want to agree with you in everything. As I grow older, I want to be more and more available and not retreat.
I long to be a Soldier of The Cross until my dying breath, and I know that means your work in the deepest places. Wanting you means yielding to the death of the flesh, and the flesh seems so sticky.
But Lord, I trust you. I predetermine to deal with things in prayer, and I know your deepest work is divine surgery.
I'm so grateful you haven't let me see all that needs to be done by your Hand, as I probably couldn't handle it.
I do love you, Lord, and want to be more like you. I want to recognizes you more quickly. I want to love more unconditionally. So many things about you I love.
I love your people.
Please change me, whatever it takes. Do anything with my life that honors you.
My Lord and my God.
