I am powerless and my life is unmanageable
without your help and guidance. I come to you
today because I believe that you can restore
and renew me to meet my needs today.
Since I cannot manage my life or affairs,
I have decided to give them to you.
I put my life, my will, my thoughts, my desires
and ambitions in Your hands.
I give you all of me: the good and the bad,
the character defects and Shortcomings,
my selfishness, resentments and problems.
I know that you will work them out in
accordance with Your plan. Such as I am,
take and use me in Your service. Guide and direct
my ways and show me what to do for you.
I cannot control or change my friends or loved
ones, so I release them to your care for Your
loving hands to do with as You will. Just keep
me loving and free from judging them. If they need
changing, God, You’ll have to do it; I can’t. Just make
me willing and ready to be of service to You, to have my
shortcomings removed, and to do my best.
Help me to see how I have harmed others and
make me willing to make amends to them all. Keep me
ever mindful of thoughts and actions that harm myself
and others, and which separate me from Your light,
love and spirit. And when I commit these errors,
make me aware of them and help me admit each
I am seeking to know You better, to love You more.
I am seeking the knowledge of Your will for me and
the power to carry it out.
