Prayer

Wholly yours

Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his (Psalm 100:3; NIV).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

God will redeem me from the world of the dead; he will surely take me to himself (Psalm 49:15; NIV).

 

Lord,
I want to be wholly yours
But so much holds me back –

My ignorance and weakness,
Flaws, forgetfulness,
And sinful nature.

I do my best each day,
Yet always fail.

But at death
I’ll be absorbed
Into your Being,

And then I will be wholly yours,
At last.
