Day 6 of 10 – Turning from Control to Surrender

2 Chronicles 30:8 (NLT)

8 Do not be stubborn, as they were, but submit yourselves to the Lord. Come to his Temple, which he has set apart as holy forever. Worship the Lord your God so that his fierce anger will turn away from you.


You are the Worthy One

Jude 24-25 (NLT)

A Prayer of Praise
24 Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.

25 All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.

Revelation 5:11-12 (NLT)

11 Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands and millions of angels around the throne and of the living beings and the elders. 12 And they sang in a mighty chorus:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered—
to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and blessing.”


Forgive us for stubbornly clinging to control from fear, doubt and unbelief, instead help us to hand over our will to you, the king of kings & forgive us for our sin, oh God: unbelief, fear, and conforming to the world.

Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)

A Living Sacrifice to God
1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.


A harvest in East & Southern Africa.

Psalm 67:2 (NLT)

2 May your ways be known throughout the earth,
your saving power among people everywhere.

PRAY: for the spirit to empower believers to fully trust God, pray for church leaders to surrender to being led only by the spirit of Christ & for the bible to be accessible & readable in all languages.


Turn from Control to Surrender:

Ask God to show you areas of your life in which you are clinging to control. spend 5 minutes in silence listening to the lord. write it down and then rip it up to release it to the lord.

1 Peter 4:1-2 (NLT)

Living for God
1 So then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin. 2 You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God.
