Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a work in progress. Though I committed my life to you many years ago the finished work will not be revealed until I draw my final breath. In the midst of my struggles, failures, and doubts I remain confident that You will complete the work that was begun the day I surrendered my life to You. Jesus, You accepted me as I was and You lovingly began to reshape my will to reflect your own nature. I'm grateful that I can bring my loved ones to You and the situations that concern me. When I commit them to You in prayer I'm less anxious and less manipulative in trying to work out things in my own way which only cause greater pain. I thank You that You will fulfill Your purpose for me this day as I commit my ways to You. Amen.
