PRAYER OF SURRENDER
(Pray this prayer when you are ready to experience intimacy with God, and hunger for a deeper relationship with Him. When you are ready to understand fully His purpose and plan for you, the reason for your mere existence, surrender to Him, pour out all your heart and soul to Him in an act of giving all up to Him. It’s okay to ask Him to help you to do it.)
“….may Your will be done” (Matthew 26:42),
Loving Father, I surrender to You today with all my heart and soul. Please come into my heart in a deeper way. I say “Yes” to You today. I open all the secret places in my heart to you and say, “Come on in.” Jesus, You are Lord of my whole life. I believe in You and receive You as my Lord and Savior. I hold nothing back. Holy Spirit, bring me deeper conversion to the person of Jesus Christ. I surrender all to you: my health, my family, my resources, occupation, skills, relationships, time management, successes and failures. I release it, and let it go. I surrender my understanding of how things out to be; my choices and my will. I surrender to You the promises I have kept and the promises I have failed to keep. I surrender my weaknesses and strengths to You. I surrender my emotions, my fears, my insecurities, my everything. I surrender _____________, ______________________, _______________________, _____________________. (Continue to surrender other areas as the Holy Spirit reveals them to you). Lord, I surrender my entire life to You, the past, the present and the future. In sickness and in health, in life and in death, I belong to You.
“Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess. You have given all of me. To you, O Lord, and I return it. All is Yours. Dispose of it wholly according to Your will. Give me Your Love and Your grace, for this is sufficient for me.”

Father God I come to u with weight on heart, mind and soul. I have been separated from my fiance Tazz for a year & 4 months now. He cheated on me with several girls and also lied to me about a lot of things @ every given opportunity he had. We have a 3 year old boy Hayden and he is truly a blessing. I became an angry, vile, vulgar woman towards him and ended up separating. GOD I still love him and believe that we can fix our ralationship. I know he still loves loves me. I pray father GOD with your grace and mercy to remove all the bad elements in his life, I pray dear lord that he seeks your approval and guidance when he needs to make any decisions in his life and not his so called twisted friends.
Lord I pray for a miracle in that he turns his back on his friends and comes back home to his kids Hayden and Landon! Father you know these boys love, need and adore their dad! And the dad loves them too, but he will leave us stranded for good times, alcohol and woman!
Father is ask that wherever he stands this moment that the seed to change is planted and that confussionreigns in his mind and that his heart is engulfed with love for me and our 2 boys. I pray that he comes back home to live with us, I pray that he stops consuming alcohol and chasing woman!
I pray that he overnight becomes a man of GOD, I pray for blessed, honest marriage with him and Lord for protection and guidance of my family including him! I lord for this promise that I will not be sexually active with him or any other then until I am married. All This dear Lord, I bring to you in pray & with utmost faith that you have answered my prayer. His out drinking now Lord with woman and his friends bring him back home to us! Amen! Thank you Jesus!
