Heavenly Father, I thank You for all the mercies You have bestowed on me.
I thank You for the forgiveness of my sins and for the gift of eternal life You have given me in Your Son Jesus Christ.
I thank You that He gave Himself for me, so that I might give myself to You.
I now present to You, all I am and all I have, as a living sacrifice to You. It’s my logical response to Your love for me. It’s my spiritual act of worship to You.
Transform me as a person by renewing my mind by Your Spirit, so that I think the way You want me to think about everything, especially about You and about Your will.
Give me discernment by Your Spirit, as I seek to put Your will into practice in my everyday life. Enable me to recognise Your will, and discover as I seek to do it, that it truly is good, acceptable and perfect.
I ask these things so that You may be honoured and glorified, in and through my life, in Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.
