    I realized that I can’t thrive alone
    So here I am bowed before His throne
    Submitting my life unto His way
    Starting anew and afresh on today…

    Father, forgive me for not putting You first.
    And letting other things steal your almighty glory
    Coming before that which You have called me to be.
    I acknowledge I was imprisoned by opinions of others
    But no more God. Never again.
    For You alone have a heaven or hell to put me in.
    I submit myself to Your will and way.
    I am transforming my mind with Your word daily
    Father I long to be more like You day by day,
    I vow to resist temptation and surrender myself.
    I give myself away to You today
    So that You can used me in anyway You see fit
    Father I thank You for all that You have done
    And what You shall accomplish in the future.
    But most of all I thank You for…
    What You are yet doing right now.
    Though I can’t understand the process,
    I know that all of this is necessary
    Needed to get me where you calling me.
    Though sometimes it feel like too much
    Father help me to just hold on and endure
    With the understanding that it is for purpose
    Amen and Ase
