Total Surrender

Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.—Matthew 10:39 (NIV)

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said that prayer should be an act of surrender. Many of us struggle with this unconditional surrender. Yet once the leap of faith is made; once God is accepted at His word and we are forgiven and reconciled by His grace, there is only one question most people ask: Why did I wait so long?


Dear Lord, I surrender my old self to You. I trust You to make me new.
