My Prayer for 2011

Take my life and let it be
consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Let me be dedicated to glorifying your name; not serving and praising this world.

Take my moments and my days,
let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Let me not complain about petty things. Or things at all.

Take my hands and let them move
at the impulse of Thy love.
Let me serve your children,
for what I have done for the least of them, I have done for you.

Take my feet and let them be
swift and beautiful for Thee.
Let my actions speak louder than my words,
especially in parenting as precious little eyes are watching me.

Take my voice and let me sing
always, only for my King.
Let me refrain from gossip.

Take my lips and let them be
filled with messages from Thee.
Let me witness this year to a lost someone who needs to hear of your saving grace.
Allow me the courage to finally do this.

Take my silver and my gold
not a mite would I withhold.
Let me not covet material things, like tuscan urns at pottery barn.

Take my intellect and use
every power as You choose.
Let me use the field of medicine to help heal spirits and bodies.

Take my will and make it Thine
it shall be no longer mine.
Let me be broken every day and use me for your Will.

Take my heart it is Thine own
it shall be Thy royal throne.
Let me be real and present and dedicated and genuine in my worship.

Take my love, my Lord I pour
at Your feet its treasure store
Let me be generous with love and not be afraid to show it.

Here am I, all of me.
Take my life, it's all for Thee.
