A Prayer of Commitment


In Matthew 9:37-38 Jesus turned, “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest.”

If you want to commit yourself to that harvest and a labourer; if you feel that now is the time when you want to cry out “Lord, I want to give myself totally to You;”  then now is the time for you to pray the following prayer :

Dear Father, In the name of Jesus I come to You.  I love You, Lord, and I thank You for this opportunity to consecrate my life completely to Jesus Christ.

Lord, I stand in my authority as a believer in Jesus Christ, and I loose myself now from every bond, every fetter, from anything that would hold me back from full commitment to Jesus.  I declare myself released in the name of Jesus, and I put myself into Your hands, Lord.  I place myself at Your disposal.  You are the Head over all things, to the Church, which is Your Body, and I am part of that Body.

Lord, from this moment onward, I place myself under Your control.  I believe that You are going to bless me and strengthen me and use me as I commit myself to You and answer Your call upon my life.

Lord, I pray for the harvest.  You directed us to ask You, the Lord of the Harvest, to send forth labourers into Your harvest.  Lord, I present myself to You as one of these labourers.  According to your will for me, as You see fit in my circumstances, my situation and my gifting, please thrust me forth into the harvest field to be a labourer for You, Lord.

I respond wholeheartedly to Your calling on my life, and I now commit myself fully to that calling and to You.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
