Prayer of surrender to the holy spirit

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.”

Prayer of Surrender

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 of my heart to you and say, “Come on in.” Jesus, you are the 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 to a deeper conversion to the person of Jesus Christ. I surrender all to you: my time, my treasures, my talents, my health, my family, my resources, my work, relationships, time management, successes and failures. I release it and let it go.

I surrender my understanding of how things ‘ought’ 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 sexuality. I especially surrender ______ (Here mention other areas of surrender as the Holy Spirit reveals them to you.)

Lord, I surrender my whole life to you, the past, the present, and the future. In sickness and in health, in life and in death, I belong to you. (Remain the Lord in a spirit of silence through your thoughts, a heart song, or simply staying in His presence and listening for His voice.)

John,

Per our phone conversation the other day, the first thing you will need to do to get the real show going with God the Father is to make a full and complete surrender of your entire life over to Him.

The first full surrender prayer I will now give you is the one you will initially start out with. After that, say the second prayer once or twice a year for the rest of your life if you really want God to have full and complete control of everything in your life.

1. Making The Initial Full Surrender

This is the first one that you will use to make the initial full surrender to God the Father.

“Father,

In the name of Jesus, I am now willing to place my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life into Your hands. I now ask that You place me into Your perfect will and plan for my life.

Father, from this moment on, I will choose to stay fully surrendered to You all the days of my life, and will allow You to lead and direct my life in the direction that You will want it to go in.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.”

2. To Stay Fully Surrendered

John, just say the following prayer once or twice a year after making the initial commitment to God to show Him that you are really serious about staying in this full surrender with Him. The words are changed around just a bit.

“Father, in the name of Jesus, I continue to place my body, my soul, my spirit, and my entire life in Your hands. I am now choosing to stay fully surrendered to You all the days of my life and I ask that You continue to keep me in Your perfect will and plan for my life.

Thank you Father.
Thank you Jesus.”

Remarks

1. The Bible tells us that we have 3 parts to our beings – body, soul, and spirit. God wants all three parts of your being fully surrendered to Him along with your entire life. When you fully surrender your entire life over to God the Father – this will literally include everything in your life – including yourself, your wife, your children, your jobs, your finances, and your health.

2. Also ask God to give you His peace so as to help take away some of the stress you are feeling right now with things being tight right now. Once you fully surrender everything over to God the Father, then it will now be His job to lead you into the jobs that He will want you to be working in, along with making sure that enough money comes your way to help keep you and your wife afloat.

If He wants you staying in the financial field, then He will lead you and open doors for you that you could not open for yourself to get the sales that you will need to stay afloat. Give God a try – you just may be pleasantly surprised with what He may do with your life!

We also have a very good detailed article on this topic in the Bible Basics section of our site. The title of this article is, “The Full Surrender.” This article will give you all of the main verses from the Bible on this full surrender that God is looking for from each and everyone of us.

OR

Oh Holy Spirit, You are the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. You are the Spirit of truth, love and holiness, proceeding from the Father and the Son, and equal to Them in all things. I adore You and love You with all my heart. Teach me to know and to seek God, by whom and for whom I was created. Fill my heart with a holy fear and a great love for Him. Give me compunction and patience, and do not let me fall into sin.

Increase faith, hope and charity in me and bring forth in me all the virtues proper to my state of life. Help me to grow in the four cardinal virtues, Your seven gifts and Your twelve fruits.

Make me a faithful follower of Jesus, an obedient child of the Church and a help to my neighbor. Give me the grace to keep the commandments and to receive the sacraments worthily. Raise me to holiness in the state of life to which You have called me, and lead me through a happy death to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Grant me also, O Holy Spirit, Giver of all good gifts, the special favor for which I ask {name special petition}, if it be for Your honor and glory and for my well being. Amen.

OR

Holy Spirit of light and love, you are the substantial love of the Father and the Son; hear my prayer. Bounteous bestower of most precious gifts, grant me a strong and living faith which makes me accept all revealed truths and shape my conduct in accord with them. Give me a most confident hope in all divine promises which prompts me to abandon myself unreservedly to you and your guidance. Infuse into me a love of perfect goodwill, and act according to God’s least desires. Make me love not only my friends but my enemies as well, in imitation of Jesus Christ who through you offered himself on the Cross for all people. Holy Spirit, animate, inspire, and guide me, and help me to be always a true follower of you. Amen.

OR

Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.
