Resources for Developing
Small Christian Communities
O, my heavenly Father, I give all of my life to you
in the name of Your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ,
and through the power of Your Holy Spirit.
I have heard You calling me,
and I choose to follow where Your Son leads me.
I want to help others find their way
into Your kingdom.
I want to serve others so that they can experience
Use the hurts and sufferings I’ve endured.
Use the talents, the resources, the time, the experiences,
the spiritual growth and everything else You have given me.
Help me to love all people unconditionally
to reveal Jesus to others through me.
Help me to grow in my desire to love all people.
Today, and every day, help me to decrease
so that You may increase in me.
Help me to love purely, humbly, and generously.
Show me how to receive more of Your love
so that I have more love to give.
Heal me of every obstacle that holds me back from serving You.
I give You permission to change me.
Here I am, Lord, I want to do Your will.
