♥ A Poet's Heart ♥

A Prayer of Self-Examination and Surrender

Oh Lord, You are amazing.

Your power and glory are marvelous;

Your love, mind and ways are pure and true.

I am but a man undeserving of your grace.

I am weak. You are strong.

I am like that of unclean rags. You are pure as the whitest snow.

I am but a worm upon the ground. You are the great I Am.

I am nothing. You are Something.

You came to me in my time of need, oh Lord.

You found me in the wilderness of life; for I was lost.

Oh so lost was I!

I weep with joy for what you have done for me, a sinner, groveling upon the earth;

While you are the Architect of all that was, is and will be.

Truly you are merciful oh God of Jacob to have seen me, with your eyes of holy fire,

skulking in the shadows of sin.

Forgive me of my transgressions, oh Lord God Almighty.

Let me be your slave oh God. Own me Lord Almighty.

Have me serve at your feet, Abba Father.


I surrender my all to you; my life, my love, my thoughts,

my heart, my body, and my devotion, God of my life.
