The prayer below offers five 'phases' each with the purpose of presenting our beings to God. It is a means of deliberately choosing the orientation of that aspect of ourselves. The suggested wording is to prompt you to express your own desire to turn this part of yourself Godward.
The phases are:
In my body, Lord, I turn to You. May every choice I make be making room for Your intended goodness to me in my body. May the choices I make of what to eat, when to rest, how to exercise, who to sit with, and where to go all be moving me towards Your great goodness. May my physical presence with others be an expression of Your good presence to them.
Lord, I turn every thought towards You and make You the anchor of my thinking. May Your truth inform all of my thoughts; may You be forming the mind of Christ in me as I consider, reflect, seek perspective, and form opinions. May You bring to mind those things that require my attention and fill my mind with new and creative thoughts or solutions that make room for Your goodness to flow.
3. Will, desires, choices
Lord, I bring to You every choice I will make today, the big decisions and the small choices. May You be causing the desires of my heart to be fixed on You and Your kingdom life, so that every choice I make is in line with Your intended goodness. Gather up all my scattered longings and disordered desires so that I long for You and Your kingdom, and all other desires flow from this place. May my choices orientate me towards You today.
Lord, I turn my feelings towards You and fix myself on the hope I find in You. May the way I feel today about people, circumstances, news, surprises, and even about myself be shot through with the hope that is mine in Jesus. I turn myself towards You, that I would feel about things the way You do. I allow myself, in every joy and trial, to know myself to be embraced and received by You.
Lord, my spirit is one with Your Spirit today. I waken myself up today, to be discerning of Your Spirit's actions in and around me. I open my eyes to see You, open my ears to hear You. I want to be awake and aware of You, of Your goodness and Your loving presence in the world today.
May Your kingdom come, may Your will be done in and through me today. Amen.
