my prayer for 2010

Lord, I’m Yours.

Whatever the cost may be,
may Your will be done in my life.

I realize I’m not here on earth
to do my own thing,
or to seek my own fulfillment
or my own glory.

I’m not here to indulge my desires,
to increase my possessions,
to impress people,
to be popular,
to prove I’m somebody important,
or to promote myself.

I’m not here even to be relevant or successful by human standards.

I’m here to please You.

 

 

I have prayed this prayer often over the years, but never made it my priority.

This year is different.
