Prayer of Commitment: Epiphany 1


Here’s a prayer of commitment from the Christian Aid website.

 

Prayer of Commitment

(inspired by Isaiah 43:2)

 

'When you pass through the waters, I will be with you…' (Isaiah 43:2)

 

God of many names
We give ourselves into the hand of your continuing creativity;
Our past, with its joys and triumphs, its failures and regrets,
Our present, with its struggles and accomplishments,

            its hopes and setbacks,
Our future, with its fears and freedom,

            its pain and possibility,
trusting the Spirit that breathes life,
trusting the love that will not let us go,
trusting the promise of the Word made flesh.
