Prayer of Sacrifice
Dear God, by your Word, I offer myself as a living sacrifice to be used by you. I understand that as I give myself to you, you provide for me all my needs for my household and you also grant me the desires of my heart.

I am thankful that you are completing the good work you have begun in me! Lord, I love you and bless your Holy Name! Amen.
