Sunday, (Oct 22) – Pray that we will willingly surrender the leadership of our lives into God’s care, and give Him the right to take control of our lives, to give us His guidance, wisdom and direction that we need. Pray that we will surrender all areas of our lives to Him: our health, our families, our resources, occupations, skills, relationships, time management, successes and failures. Pray that we will repent of our stubbornness of heart and our desire to do things our way rather than God’s way. Pray that we will want to surrender our wills to His will, and to say daily, “Thy will not mine be done.” Pray that we will learn to step out in faith moment by moment as we surrender our lives to Him.
