A BIRTHDAY PRAYER: I SURRENDER TO SERVE YOU
I called the LORD and He heard me
He sent His Son and He saved me
He delivered my soul from oppression
He anointed my head with His unction
Now He fits me up to do His bidding
To daily bring His word to the living
I thank You, LORD, for my new year
You gladden my heart with Your goodness
My soul and my spirit I surrender
My body in tow to Your harness
To pull the chariot of Your good news
Inspiring, correcting and edifying
To discharge, by grace, my own dues
And fulfill the terms of my calling
Amen in Jesus’ name.

Knowing and serving the LORD is the best thing that can happen to anyone. It starts with making peace with God through our Lord Jesus. If you would like to live like this but you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, do pray this short prayer:
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Almighty God, I repent of my sins and ask you to forgive me. I receive the work Jesus did for me by shedding His blood for my sins. Write my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life and send your Spirit to live in my heart and teach me your word. I receive the grace to live a life that honours you henceforth in Jesus’ name. Amen.
