Lord, I am about as earthen a vessel as You might ever find. I know all too well how many flaws, faults, and potential failures are part of my life and personality. Today, however, I take a step of faith, trusting in You more than in myself.
I confess my belief that You have chosen me, as unlikely as that may seem to me and those who know me. However, You have plans and purposes for my life that only I can fully accomplish. I don’t understand it, Lord. But I accept it by faith.
I affirm Your choice of me as Your servant. I declare that even though I am an earthen vessel, You can work in me and through me in a way that will bring glory to Yourself and Your Kingdom. Lord Jesus, my heart’s desire is to be used by You in powerful and redemptive ways. I want my life to be useful in Your hands to bring life, freedom, and joy to every person I meet.
As improbable as it may seem, I declare that I am Your choice for the tasks that lie ahead of me. Thank You, Lord, for choosing someone like me to be Your representative. I yield myself fully to You and Your will for my life. Amen.
