Prayer of Relinquishment

Richard Foster’s Prayer of Relinquishment

Today, O Lord, I yeild myself to you

May you will be my delight today.

May you have perfect sway in me.

May your love be the pattern of my living.

I surrender to you my hopes, my dreams, my ambitions. Do with them what you will, when you will, as you will.

I place into your loving care my family, my friends, my future. Care for them with a care that I can never give.

I release into your hands my need to control, my craving for staus, my fear of obscuirty. Eradicate the evil purify the good, and establish your kingdom on earth.

For Jesus’ sake, amen.
