Prayer of Dedication
Using the Bible verses we read today, let’s dedicate our trip to God through prayer.
Father God, we offer our bodies and our trip to You as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to You. We do this as true and proper worship to You, God. We ask that You help us make wise and God-honoring choices so that we do not conform to the pattern of the world. Instead, transform us by the renewing of our minds. May we test and approve what Your will is—Your good, pleasing and perfect will.
We know it is by the grace given to us by You that we can come to You humbly. We don’t want to think too highly of ourselves for we know that this is Your trip, Your mission. We desire to think of ourselves with sober judgment in accordance with the faith you have given to each of us.
We know that our team has many members and each one serves an important function. Though we are many, we form one body—one team. We have different gifts from You. We ask You to use those gifts in our mission and to encourage one another on our team. We don’t want those gifts to clash or for some to be diminished. Help us build each other up. We ask you to keep us diligent and cheerful.
Send me, Lord. Use me, Lord. Change me, Lord.
