Lord, thank You for a new day! Thank You for a new week! Thank You for a new month! Lord, give us a new beginning together with You. Wash us afresh from anything of the past. Remove any blockages between us and You, dear Lord! We want to have a fresh beginning with You today. Even early in the morning, Lord, to touch You and enjoy You! Throughout the day, Lord, keep us in a constant contact with You! Lord, You are our new beginning! You are the new One, the fresh One, the lovely One!
In this new day, Lord, we consecrate ourselves afresh to You! Our whole being, Lord, belongs to You! We just give ourselves to You. We consecrate our mind to You to think according to You and be set on our spirit! Lord, our will – take it, make it one with You, even submissive to Your will! And, Lord, may our emotion be in tune with Yours – loving You, and loving what You love + hating what You hate! Our whole heart, Lord, may be turned to You – Turn us again and again! Incline our heart towards You! Even our body, Lord – we consecrate it to You – to serve You, be in the meetings of the church, and even be dedicated to Your use.
Lord, have more ground in us. We just want to give You our consent – our permission! We don’t want to “take decisions” in a rushed way, and we don’t want to do anything apart from You – we just want to give You more ground in our whole being. Lord, have more of our cooperation – so that You may do what You desire to do in us! Operate in us, work Yourself into us, mingle Yourself more with us!
