Praying the Lord’s Prayer: “For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory, forever and ever. Amen”
Father, from the day of our birth we’ve been building our little domains and asserting our power to rule them. You know our hearts. You see the tendencies and the well-beaten pathways towards crowing ourselves the king and queen of whatever it is we’re doing and building. We’re wrong and we’re sorry. Yours is the kingdom. Yours is the power. It is your right to build our lives according to your kingdom. You have bought us with the blood of your son—you’ve called us your children and your heirs with Christ. By his grace, we choose your kingdom and your power, O Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Commission to Serve the King:
By the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Amen.
