Offering Parts to Serve the Whole

In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.  Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.  Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.  For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace. Romans 6: 11-14.

Father, let my hands be instruments to hold the young, to embrace the elderly, to wash dishes, vacuum floors for your glory.

Keep my back strong so I can lift boxes for the poor and bend low before you in humility.

Strengthen my legs to go into places where other fear to go.

Give my mouth the ability to speak the word of truth to a crooked generation.

Keep my eyes from those things that act to distract me from the Beauty of your Face.
