Prayer of Submission

The following prayer was written by Ben Cachiaras.

DEAR GOD,

Disturb me. Rouse me from sleepy paths of comfortable faith that too easily become dangerous ruts of safety rather than the adventurous path you have called me to walk with you. Forgive me for focusing more on what I want you to do for “my ministry” and “my life” than what you may want me to do for you and for your kingdom. Help me to remember that your call to me is simply to follow—and that you are on the move always. Push me, Jesus, with the lifting power of your Spirit out of stagnant places I’ve been in. Prod me past the horizons formed by my fear. Give me an attitude that is finally ready to follow you, Jesus, no matter what. I want to go beyond. I really do, Lord. Where you lead me, I will follow. No turning back.

AMEN.
