This prayer was written during a ‘Missions Intensives’ event and I think it is appropriate for me to put it up on this blog now because I have been struggling with how hopeless it seems for God to use me to pursuade others of the truth for their salvation. It’s just hard to convince those around me and it sometimes causes one to give up evangelizing. There are many others that seem more adequate for this task than me (e.g, Billy Graham), but it’s not an option, we are all commanded to reach out to those around us. Where I am now is exactly where I am supposed to be and those are the ones who I am called to reach out to.Â
I am an unclean, unworthy and wretched vessel in your perfect sight.Â You see through my heart and my motives are revealed before you. But I ask that you use me in whatever small or great way for your kingdom to be a witness of your love and truth. Forgive me of my selfishness and make me into your servant.
Be with me God and lead me in the direction that you please. Show me what you want me to do and if I must sacrifice everything to do so, even my own calling and name as a [this is a secret] then let it be so Lord.Â I lay it down on the alter and ask that you cleanse me and anoint me for your divine purpose.
Please push me aside and make your Son shineÂ through me more clearly than the brightest star. Let Him receive all the glory that is due to Him and if you must break me and if I must die for it then do what you know is best for your kingdom. I want to reach out to the lost souls, I want to love them as you do. Please give me your wisdom.
In Jesus’ name,Â
