Your will be done

1. I offer my body and mind to you,
I open my heart and soul.

2. Forgive my sins, and heal me, Lord;
I beg you: make me whole.

3. But if it’s your desire
That I should suffer with your Son,

4. Please help me to accept my lot with joy:
Your will be done.


1. You and I both belong to God (Job 33:6; NLT).

2. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases (Psalm 103:3; NLT).

3. I want to suffer with him, sharing in his death (Philippians 3:10; NLT).

God called you to do good, even if it means suffering, just as Christ suffered for you. He is your example, and you must follow in his steps (1 Peter 2:21; NLT).

4. By God’s power accept your share of suffering for the gospel (2 Timothy 1:8; NET).

I am overflowing with joy in the midst of all our suffering (2 Corinthians 7:4; NET.

If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine (Matthew 26:39; NLT).

  • Hi Ruth, I am late today with being at the surgery this morning early.
    “Your will be done” is a great short devotion. It speaks to me of having peace in Him, no matter what strife we have. Having the ability to just say “Your will be done” in every circumstance is the key to inner peace for the child of God. May you be richly blessed today Ruth.

    • Hi, Alan, I do hope your wound is progressing, however slowly. You are so right about “Your will be done”. May this phrase be our watchword. Thank you so much for your good wishes – and mine to you, of course XXX
