Prayer of Commitment: Joshua 3: 7-17

Here’s a prayer of petition and commitment inspired by Joshua 3:7-17, where the people of Israel cross over the Jordan River into the Promised Land. The prayer was written by Dave Hopwood, and posted on the Engage Worship website.

(inspired by Joshua 3:7-17)

Lord, at times you call us to step ahead of others,
like those priests stepping into the River Jordan.
You ask us to pave a way with our own footsteps,
to move with you, in your way, in your time.

Help us to know that you tread the path with us,
and though we may be fearful
and our steps may be reluctant and faltering,
it is enough that we take one step at a time.

So Lord we commit this week to you,
and the places we will go,
trusting that you go beside us each day,
wherever we may find ourselves.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
