Giving All of Myself to Christ – a Prayer

hands to the sky


Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done. Matthew 16:24-27


How I thank You for Jesus and for all that You have done for me! I praise and thank You for Your Word. I praise and thank You for Your Spirit – such an incredible gift You have given to me because I am Your child. I want to give You all of myself. I hold nothing back. As much as I know how, I want to give You everything I am and all that I have. You have given Your all for me – even though it cost You everything. Now I give my all for You – even though it costs me everything. I come before You with a broken and contrite heart. I humble myself down to the dust. I bow with my face to the ground and exalt You alone as God!

I fully yield to You all of:

  • my time
  • my energy
  • my ministry
  • my children
  • my family
  • my talents
  • my abilities
  • my body
  • my sexuality
  • my thoughts
  • my use of food
  • my beliefs
  • my weakness
  • my praise
  • my thanksgiving
  • my sin
  • my pride
  • my husband
  • my health
  • my money
  • my career
  • my hobbies
  • my possessions
  • my house
  • my car
  • my priorities
  • my wisdom
  • my dreams
  • my priorities
  • my plans
  • my will
  • my desires

I lay down all of myself, all that I have, all that I am, and all that I ever will be at Your feet. You are God. You are my Master. My life is in Your hands. My only purpose is to bring pleasure to You and to be useful to You. I long to know You more.

In Christ, I have died to myself. My old sinful self is now crucified, dead, and buried with Christ. And now I have been raised to new life in Christ Jesus! This new life I live, I live through the power of Christ. I am no longer a slave to sin, but a slave to righteousness! (Romans 6-8)

I receive all that You have, Jesus. And I receive all that You have done for me and all that You are. I gladly and joyfully receive:

  • Your desires
  • Your will
  • Your suffering
  • Your pruning
  • Your goals
  • Your plans
  • Your passions
  • Your purposes
  • Your priorities
  • Your power
  • Your righteousness and holiness
  • Your glory
  • Your will
  • Your resources
  • Your strength
  • Your wisdom
  • Your godliness
  • Your perspective
  • Your love for God and for people
  • Your mercy and grace
  • Your Spirit
  • Your Word
  • Your joy
  • Your peace
  • Your presence
  • Your blessing
  • Your abundant spiritual life
  • Your life-giving rebukes
  • Your discipline
  • Your refining process
  • Your fruit
  • Your hatred of sin

The old has gone and the new has come. Thank You for making me a new creation by Your power. Cleanse me of my sin. Transform me by Your power to be more and more like You, Jesus. I fully submit myself to You. I no longer live for myself, but for Your will and Your glory.

In the Name and power and will of Christ,
