Dear Jesus the Christ, You existed before the world began and are all-powerful and all-knowing. Words cannot adequately portray your majestic brilliance and pervasive love. Your love is perfectly unfathomable and eternally never-ending, given to us, whom you have created. We are born of your will to serve you and bring you pleasure. May we do that today as we worship you.
Dear Christ Jesus, we are sinners saved only by your amazing grace and generous mercy. You know us to the very depths of our souls. There is nothing you don't know, and yet you still love us. Thank you for your love. Please forgive us for our sins of commission and omission. We confess that at times we do or don't do that which does not please you. We repent of these times and turn away from these failures of obedience. We don't want to run our own lives but want you to control us with your Holy Spirit. Please do so. You have our permission to come into our lives and fully lead and guide us on paths of righteousness to bring you greater glory.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for forgiving us and washing us clean of the stain and blemishes of sin on our souls. Thank you for loving us so much that you always guide us back to an intimate relationship with you. Thank you for our life in you. We praise you and thank you for all that you do for us. We are your grateful children.
Lord Christ, our Master, please give us knowledge of your will today and the strength to carry it out. Use us as you see fit to bring you glory. May you fully and completely have your way with us, and may we fully surrender to you. May all we do and say bring you honor and glory, and when we fail to do so, may we quickly confess this sin, repent, and be restored to a deep, intimate relationship with you. Amen.
Your aspiring servant, Daniel M.
