Prayer for Surrender

Father, Your child needs rest.  Your child needs healing from a broken heart.  Oh Lord, Your child needs You.  


“Then your salvation will come like the dawn,

and your wounds will quickly heal. 

Your godliness will lead you forward, 

and the glory of the LORD will protect you from behind. Then when you call, the LORD will answer. 

‘Yes, I am here,’ he will quickly reply."  (Isaiah 58:8-9)


Father, this Christmas help us to realize the only gift that really matters is our complete surrender to You. -In Jesus' name, Amen

Prayer to Trust God

God, help us to understand that we don’t have to personally control everything for life to work out.  


Trust in the Lord with all your heart

    and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5


Father, we can't do this on our own.  Today, help us to give up. I'm tired of being trapped on this island because I can't seem to navigate the waves coming at me.  I'm just going in circles.

Lord, I want to set sail. You are the strongest, and most reliable force in our universe.  I will let you steer my life, so we can finally get somewhere! -In Jesus name, Amen.
