Prayer To Consecrate Yourself To God
Jesus paid an unfathomable price for you when he died on the cross. The Son of God must have found this task challenging because he prayed to his father saying, “Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me Luke 22:42 NLT.” But Jesus’ life purpose was to do the Father’s will John 5:30. So he said to his father, “Yet I want your will to be done, not mine Luke 22:42 NLT.”
Do you ever have that conversation with your heavenly father? My God, is that really what you want me to do? Is there another option? If not, then I want to follow your wishes, not mine.
Consecrating yourself to God is giving yourself to Him as a living sacrifice. Jesus purchased you as a gift for the father. By consecrating yourself to God, you are thanking Jesus for his supreme sacrifice.
When you present yourself to the Lord in consecration, you are giving him the freedom to do whatever He wants in and through you. This is your service to the Lord. The apostle Paul wrote, “I exhort you therefore, brothers, through the compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service Romans 12:1.”
Let God’s deep love for you motivate you to present yourself to Him.
This prayer is a model I use to consecrate myself daily to the Lord.
