To Glorify God
In view of God’s mercy, I offer my body as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God — this is my spiritual act of worship. It is [not in my own strength]; for it is You, Lord, Who are all the while effectually at work in me — energizing and creating in me the power and desire — both to will and work for Your good pleasure and satisfaction and delight.
Father, I will not draw back or shrink in fear, for then Your soul would have no delight or pleasure in me. I was bought for a price — purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made Your very own. So, then, I honor You, Lord, and bring glory to You in my body.
I called on You in the day of trouble; You delivered me, and I shall honor and glorify You. I rejoice because You delivered me and drew me to Yourself out of the control and dominion of darkness (obscurity) and transferred me into the Kingdom of the Son of Your love. I will confess and praise You, O Lord my God, with my whole (united) heart; and I will glorify Your name forevermore.
As a bond servant of Jesus Christ, I receive and develop the talents that have been given me, for I would have You say of me, “Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant!” I make use of the gifts (faculties, talents, qualities) according to the grace given me. I let my light so shine before men that they may see my moral excellence and my praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify my Father Who is in heaven.
In the name of Jesus, I allow my life to lovingly express truth in all things — speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly. Whatever I do — no matter what it is — in word or deed, I do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in [dependence upon] His Person, giving praise to God the Father through Him. Whatever may be my task, I work at it heartily (from the soul), as [something done] for the Lord and not for men. To God the Father be all glory and honor and praise. Amen.
