I Dedicate…My Every-Day Life.

There’s a prayer I’ve taken to repeating, most every morning….

It’s a prayer that I made up. Or should I say…borrowed from Scripture.

A combination of Romans 12:1 as translated in The Message and the Book of Common Prayer rendering of 1 Chronicles 29:14.

It’s a prayer of dedication. A prayer of reminder.

A reminder of His place. A reminder of my place.

A morning prayer.

 

Lord,

By your power, today I take my life. My every-day, eating, sleeping, walking-around, and going-to-work life, and present it before you as a living sacrifice.

I embrace what you have done for me as the best thing I can do for you.

And I acknowledge, today and every day: all things come from you, O Lord. And of your own, have I given you.
