Deep Service: A Plea
Lord, I know that deep service begins in self-abandon. So, help me abandon myself. Help me abandon my will. Help me abandon anything and everything not of you. Help me abandon the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Help me abandon fears of loneliness, neediness, and selfishness. Help me to serve you how you want to be served. Help me to yield my mission to yours. Every day, every hour, every minute, every second. Lead me on the way of self-abandon that I may enter into deep service. Help me to leave the old me for the same you. And help me not just to be fine with your way to abandon, but to love it, so that I may love you. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
