Prayer of Surrender


Loving Father,

I surrender to you today with all my heart and soul. Please come into my heart in a deeper way. I say, “Yes” to you today. I open all the secret places of my heart to you and say, “Come on in.” Jesus, you are the Lord of my whole life. I believe in you and receive you as my Lord and Savior. I hold nothing back.

Holy Spirit, bring me to a deeper conversion to the person of Jesus Christ. I surrender all to you: my time, my treasures, my talents, my health, my family, my resources, my work, relationships, time management, successes and failures. I release it and let it go.

I surrender my understanding of how things ‘ought’ to be, my choices and my will. I surrender to you the promises I have kept and the promises I have failed to keep. I surrender my weaknesses and strengths to you. I surrender my emotions, my fears, my insecurities, my sexuality. I especially surrender ______ (Here mention other areas of surrender as the Holy Spirit reveals them to you.)

Lord, I surrender my whole life to you, the past, the present, and the future. In sickness and in health, in life and in death, I belong to you. (Remain in the Lord in a spirit of silence through your thoughts, a heart song, or simply staying in His presence and listening for His voice.)


God’s Gifts Of Love and Trust

Psalm 9:10 (WEB)
Those who know your name will put their trust in you,
for you, Yahweh, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Promise: You can trust in Me for I will never forsake you.

When we know who God is, it is easy to trust in Him. When we are convinced that He is loving and kind and gentle, we will be able to risk again and entrust our hearts fully to Him. If we are not yet convinced of His goodness, we will struggle to trust Him.

I believe that giving our Father the gift of our trust is the greatest gift that we can give Him. When we trust Him, we lower our defenses and open our hearts fully to Him. When we trust Him, we will not lean to our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6) but completely yield to His leading in our life. I believe when we begin to trust God in a simple childlike way, it moves His heart like nothing else that we can do.

In today’s promise, we read that our God and Father will never, ever forsake those who trust in Him. He is unwavering in His commitment to us. He will never leave us or forsake us. For those of us who struggle with the fear of being abandoned, I pray that the reality of our Papa’s goodness and closeness would drive all fear out of our hearts (1 John 4:18) so that we can fully trust Him.

Guided By A Loving Father

Psalm 32:8 (WEB)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shall go.
I will counsel you with my eye on you.

Promise: I will look after you and teach you the way that is best.

God doesn’t leave us alone to try to figure out life all by ourselves. The Bible says that He is closer to us than we could possibly imagine. In Psalm 139, King David tells us that God knows everything about us and is familiar with all our ways (Psalm 139:1-3). In today’s promise, we read that God has committed Himself to teach us in the way we should go and guide us into what is best.

The New Living Translation says Psalm 32:8 this way… The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. (NLT) May the promise of our Father’s tender guidance bring a sense of rest and security to our hearts today. May we know that we are not alone in this life. Each step that we take is carefully guided by a loving Father who has only our best interests at heart.

God is everything that we need when we need him. He is our father, our brother, our savior, our friend, our healer, our redeemer and our teacher. Time and space would fail to speak of the many ways that the Triune God (Father, Son & Holy Spirit) watches over us every moment of our lives.


Give Your Shame/Guilt To God’s Spirit

The Rapture Prayer

Our Father in Heaven,

We believe that in accord with your Word the hour has come for Your children to be received into glory and it is plainly evident to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.  We ask that You would now glorify us that we may glorify You.  We have greatly desired to be with Your Son, our Lord, and now we will see Him face to face.  We have accepted Your Son and His message and have placed our faith in Him for the forgiveness of our sins.  We know that He rose again from the dead and ascended to Your right hand.  As surely as You live, we know He lives and reigns with You.  And as surely as He rose He will come again.  We have brought You glory on earth and have obeyed the commandment of Your Son to share the Gospel of grace with every nation.

Your Holy Spirit within us has convicted the whole world of sin.  The world You love has rejected Your offer of forgiveness, but all of Your sheep have heeded the message and await the fulfillment of the promise You made to redeem our earthly bodies.  We know that You will not lose even one of us.  Free us from these bodies of sin and death and seat us with our Lord in the heavenly realms.  Hide us with Christ on high.  We accept Your irrevocable gifts of eternal life and the authority to reign over the nations.  Clothe us in incorruptible and immortal bodies.  Make us like Your perfect Son.  Let us walk with Him clothed in white with new names and as everlasting pillars in Your heavenly temple.

We have fought the good fight and kept our faith to the end.  We have overcome the world not by our works, but by our faith in Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.  And now our accuser and his accusing angels are preparing a cosmic assault to destroy us, yet we are not shaken.  We will overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.  We have loved not our lives unto death.  Together we cry “Abba! Father!”  Deliver us from the wrath that is to come and count us worthy to escape all the things coming on the earth and to stand before the Son of Man.  Purify and sanctify Your Church.  Remove everything that divides us.  Make us one just as You and Your Son are One.  Make us one in the Spirit and in the truth.  Keep us until the end.  Let us faithfully follow You and Your Word, never flinching in the face of persecution and adversity.

For those who still refuse to come to Your Son to find life, we pray that You would now prepare them for the coming wrath.  When we go to You, open their eyes and bring them to repentance.  Let them finally recognize that You are the LORD of all the earth and no god was formed before You, neither will any god be formed after You.  Open their blind eyes and unstop their deaf ears.  Melt their hard hearts.  Please show them great mercy even in the midst of wrath.  Let them finally come to know You and let them hold fast to their faith in You even as great horror is unleashed upon the earth.  Surround them with people and Scriptural knowledge that will help direct their path in the midst of great opposition and deception.  Let them not be deceived.  Keep them from taking the beast’s mark.

We pray also for protection for Your people Israel.  Please bless them with abundance and let not their enemies triumph over them.  Let them finally recognize that Jesus is their Messiah.  Help them to fervently seek the truth despite what will be the greatest opposition they have ever faced.  Protect the remnant and send on them provision for their every need.  Keep them in the palm of Your hand.

Finally, we pray that You would stir up our hearts with faith and courage, so that in these remaining days we would share the Good News and the lateness of the hour with a greater fervency and zeal than we ever have before.  Let us no longer just be fed ourselves, but let us go and feed Your sheep.  Make each brother and sister aware of what they can do to alert the Church and the world to what is coming.  Give them courage and provision to carry Your plans through to completion.  Help them to deliver the message boldly.  Help them to pray this prayer unceasingly.

Abba, we await Your Son from Heaven.  We long for deliverance.  Maranatha and AMEN.


It’s Time To Look Up and See Our Saving Grace

Jude 1:24 (WEB)

Promise 270: I will keep you from falling until you joyfully stand blameless in My presence.

God Is In Control

Deuteronomy 29:9

Almighty God reserves the right to reveal some things and conceal others. Although we may not know why natural disasters occur, the biblical truths we do know with absolute certainty allow us to trust the Lord even in times of great suffering. Because of the Bible, we can be certain:

God is in control (Psalm 103:19). Nothing in heaven or on earth is outside of His rule and authority. He does not react to events but sovereignly ordains or permits them to run their course. Although we cannot know for certain if He has sent a catastrophe or allowed it, we can trust in His goodness and wisdom.

The Lord loves people and wants them to be saved (John 3:16-17). Giving His Son for the salvation of the world proves without a doubt that He loves each person. This truth stands firm despite the fact that many reject the Savior. He cares for us, even when we can’t feel it or won’t accept it.

God works circumstances for His good purpose (Isa. 46:10). Though we can’t fully comprehend what He’s doing in each incident, every disaster is a wake-up call for humanity. God is alerting us to the need for repentance—so the lost can be saved and the saved can be revived to live totally for Him. The Lord wants to get our attention, and catastrophes open our ears to hear from Him.

The One who loves us perfectly is in full control, working everything out according to His plan. Knowing this should fill us with hope, even in the midst of crisis situations. The Lord promises to turn disaster to good for those who “are called according to His purpose” (Rom. 8:28).
