Sermon Response: Prayer of Surrender

One of the best uses for a blog entry is to respond to a sermon. This

  • Helps you process the sermon
  • Encourages others to process the sermon
  • Gives others insights into your church and, hopefully, the Gospel

As a result, here is a thought in response to today’s sermon.

We wrapped up a series on the Lord’s Prayer by praying through the various themes.

Under prayers of surrender (“your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”) we prayed the following prayer by John Wesley:

Dear Father, I am no longer my own, but yours. Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will; put me to doing, put me to suffering; let me be employed for you or laid aside for you, exalted for you or brought low for you; let me be full, let me be empty; let me have all things, let me have nothing; I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal.

I meant all of this–or at least I want to mean all of this.

We pray by faith.
