a prayer of submission

Through Christ, my Lord, I have found favor with You
I abide in Your Kingdom as beloved child and humble servant
Resting not in blind trust but in the richness of a faith
Rooted in the testimony of my life
And of those who have journeyed before

When you set the impossible before me
I am assured You will see the work to its fruition
Wipe from  my sight the closed door of rejection and
Fix my vision on the path of possibility You manifest
That I may follow Your lead with confidence in Your design

Cause me to so desire Your righteousness
That I forsake my need to comprehend or control
All that passes through Your hands
Enlarge my experience of Your infinite power

And use my life to fulfill Your purposes here on earth.

offered in response to the story of Mary in Luke 1:26-38


  1. me too.

    and that last line of yours sums it up, aye? not our light, but His through us.
