"Prayer of Rededication" is an original Christian prayer which thanks to God for a change of attitude and a heart returned to what is most important.

Prayer of Rededication

Dear Lord,

I want to thank you for hearing my prayer and helping me to be patient. Lately, I've been wanting things to go my way, hoping too, that others around me would be responsive and helpful. As you know, this hasn't been happening.

But, I see where I've been going wrong by putting my faith and trust in others—hoping that they would respond to my needs—and of course, that has not happened.

But, good Lord, I've returned to the Bible and your Word and have been praying for guidance as I listen for your voice. By returning to what is important—you—my attitude has changed and instead of focusing on others and events to meet my needs, I have turned to you and have found the love, purpose, and direction I have been seeking.

Thank you, Jesus, for helping me, loving me, and showing me the way. Thank you for new mercies, for forgiving me. I rededicate myself to you wholly. I surrender my will to your will. I give you back control of my life.

You are the only one who gives freely, with love to anyone who asks. The simplicity of it all still astounds me!

Create in me a clean heart, O God.

Renew a loyal spirit within me.

Luke 9:23 (NLT)

Then he said to the crowd, "If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me."

And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you.

Let them be a living and holy sacrifice--the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
