Though my heart scarcely scratches the surface of Your incomprehensible, all-consuming love, I give it for Your use, my Lord and King. Elevate the normal powers existent in Your created one with the strength and fortitude of Your Holy Spirit. In sweet submission, use these lips to proclaim Your righteousness. As I strive to be a blessing to others, shield me from the self-inflicted injuries that tarnish Your testimony. Only You, my Savior, can rescue me from myself. I delight in the high calling of being one chosen by Your hands despite the weakness of my flesh. Have Your way in and through me, Lord. Mold me into Your likeness. As Your servant, tune my ears to follow the guidance of Your Spirit. May Your will, not mine, be done, God. For the pleasure of doing Your will far outweighs the riches of success or fame or self-exaltation. Let Your glory be the purpose for this life. Under the beauty of Your Word in Acts 20:24 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I pray.
But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself,
if only I may finish my course and the ministry
that I received from the Lord Jesus,
to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Acts 20:24, ESV
