From our 2005 archives, one of my favorite prayers. I’m shocked I’ve never re-posted this here at this version of Lent & Beyond since we began this site in 2007!
I’m aware that I can’t change my behavior unless God first draws my heart towards Him and renews my mind…:
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you,
so guide our minds,
so fill our imaginations,
so control our wills,
that we may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated unto you;
and then use us, we pray you, as you will,
and always to your glory and the welfare of your people;
through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
