I Serve You, God. A Prayer.
Almighty God, most awesome,
You have infinite power;
You rule all earth and heaven,
You are the light of mankind.
I bring to You humble thanks
For all of Your good blessings,
Truly You fill up my heart.
I praise You for Your mercy
And thank You that for providence.
I present myself to You,
A low and humble servant,
To await for Your command.
Make true my motivation,
And my devotion honest.
I am blessed by serving You
Help me to make right judgments;
Let me hear my Master's voice
Directing the way to turn.
I look to You for my care,
And protection from dangers
Against my soul and body.
Grant me such strength for today,
That I may give all my strength,
And mind, and soul to Your work.
My life is an offering.
Find pleasure in my service,
I seek not any reward-
Better than to hear you say
"Well done my faithful servant.*"
We are all serving someone be it God or ourselves or someone else. This prayer starts with praise and acknowledgment of God's sovereignty and power. The best servant knows his master best. The essence of this prayer is to be true in motivation and not to deceive yourself. It is in serving God that we are blessed. God gives us meaning and purpose he gives us work to do in his name and then rewards us for doing it.
