Lent Day 33: A Daily Prayer Releasing Control

I wrote this prayer and few years ago, and write in on the first page of my journal each time I start a new one.  I read it each morning, and it has proved to be very helpful in going about my day:

Holy Trinity, today I surrender every aspect of my life totally and completely to You.  I give it all to You, I release control.  You are capable, I believe that You can do this (all of the “this” that will come up today).  I will not give into fear today.

This morning I turn once more toward the Kingdom of God and away from the Kingdom of ________ (insert you name).  Holy Trinity, give me the attitude today of constant awareness that I do not have the right to be sinful, to act sinful. Deliver me Lord from the passions of pride, vanity and self-will.

Oh bless’ed Jesus, I receive your friendship and forgiveness today.  As I begin this day I know that I am clean, forgiven, ready to enter into Your great story and into the battle with You.   I will not believe that lies of Satan today.  For I believe that I am loved, that you are for me, that my heart is good and that is matters to You.  I am holy, blameless and beyond reproach.

As I sit here this morning I am simply entering into an ongoing conversation, an ongoing relationship, that You have invited me into.  I am engaged, all of me is here, speak Holy Trinity for I am listening to You.
