Commitment: A New Story

Here’s a prayer of commitment from Rev. Mindi’s Rev-o-lution blog.

Prayer of Commitment

Author of Salvation, write in us a new story.
Erase the sins of the past and create a new narrative,
one in which we seek Your love and justice in this world.
Write a new direction for our lives,
away from the busy-ness and cares of the world for success and stability,
and instead plot us towards ways of living Your compassion,
care and grace in the world.

Create new opportunities for us, O God,
to explore and live this adventure of life in bold and daring ways,
in which new insights may unfold for us.
Grant us the fullness of life by living for others,
as You taught us to love our neighbor as ourselves,
but most of all, may our story be about You,
about Your love for us,
and what Your love for us calls us to do. 
In the name of Christ,
who writes the new ending and beginning, we pray. Amen.
