Prayer For Commitment
Dear heavenly Father, here's a huge understatement: I am so thankful that salvation is of the Lord, from beginning to end. We were dead in our sins and trespasses when you raised us up to new life in Jesusgranting us complete forgiveness, declaring us righteous in Christ, and sealing and indwelling us with your Spirit. Hallelujah, many times over!
Lord Jesus Christ, I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life (take a few moments to ask his forgiveness for anything particular that is on your conscience). Please forgive me. I now turn from everything that I know is wrong.
Thank you that you died on the cross for me, so that I could be forgiven and set free. Thank you that you offer me forgiveness and the gift of your Spirit.
I now receive that gift. Please come into my life by your Holy Spirit to be with me forever. Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen.
Heavenly Father, today I make the commitment to a deeper life of prayer. I know that You answer prayer, and I desire an effectual, fervent prayer life. Help me stay committed and disciplined. My desire is to seek You and know You. The Bible says in John 10:27, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. You are my Good Shepherd, and I thank You, Lord, that You lead me, and I hear Your voice. I am listening, Lord! In Jesus' Name. Amen.
I thank you for everything you have done in my life thus far. I thank you for blessing me with good health and happiness. Dear Lordwhat I want more than anything is for the person whom I love and want to spend my life with to return the same love and
commitment to me

I will be forever greatful and indebted to you godIn JESUS name I pray.
you have welcomed us to this table
as your beloved children
and nourished us with the love of Christ
embodied in bread and cup.
Strengthen us with courage
to embrace all whom you love
as beloved children.
May your love through us
bring healing and wholeness to them and us
in the name of Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord
and through the power of your Spirit.
God our Father, you gave us life.
Christ Jesus our Savior, you gave your life that we might live.
Holy Spirit our consoler and purifier, you revivify our lives.
For the poor who need help today, not next week, we pray to you Holy Trinity that we might recognize, without delay, the poverty in our Sisters and our Brothers and be moved to Gospel holiness in your name and through your grace.
For those of us in a position to condemn hate, let us condemn hate, today.
For Christians in a position to stand in solidarity with the oppressed, the poor and the marginalized, let us stand together, today.
For all God's children in a position to pray for peace, for the conversion of hearts, for the Spirit of God to descend upon us, let this be our prayer, today.
For all people of good will in a position to work for justice, today is the day to do it; let this be our work, every day.
O Lord, while we individually must contend with the Work of Mercy that compels us to bear patiently the troublesome, may we also heed the call to admonish sinners, knowing today that racism is a sin and silence is complicity.
Recognizing the poor need help today, not next week, aid us and sustain us, Lord, as we pray for the souls of the lives lost over racism, white supremacy, and all ideologies that diminish a person's dignity and identity as beloved children of God. We pray also for your help as we examine our own consciences, speak out to condemn hatred, and recommit ourselves to having our hearts centered in your mercy. Mercy because that is predicated on divine love, and centered in You for whom alone we will move forward or stay back.
We call ourselves followers of Christ; May we live out the Gospel call to holiness.
We call ourselves followers of Christ; May we reclaim the Beatitudes.
We call ourselves followers of Christ; May we be reminded of our duty, may we be sustained, and may our hearts be purified so that we may change ourselves as an example for the world.
May Mary, the Mother of Mercy protect and intercede for us, and may God our Father, Christ Jesus our Savior, the Holy Spirit our consoler and purifier hear our prayer.
Lord, Jesus Christ, from the time of our baptism we have belonged to
you and since then we have professed our faith countless times. Today,
in the presence of the whole Church we come before you and we
consecrate ourselves to you. We commit ourselves to avoid sin and to
deepen our relationship with you and with our brothers and sisters.
With your grace, we commit ourselves to imitate your unconditional
love for all people, especially as we serve those men and women who
are most poor and abandoned. May we follow the example of Saint
Vincent and Saint Louise and walk along the paths of the gospel. At the
same time, may we provide for the spiritual and material welfare of
those who are poor, those persons in whom you reveal yourself, you
who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.
Lord God our Father,
we pledge ourselves to serve you and all humankind,
in the cause of peace,
for the relief of want and suffering,
and for the praise of your name.
Guide us by your Spirit;
give us wisdom;
give us courage;
give us hope;
and keep us faithful now and always.
