The instrumental music continues during the praying

ALL SINGING: I Surrender All, verse 1
All to Jesus I surrender; all to him I freely give;
I will ever love and trust him, in his presence daily live.
I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

ALL PRAYING:
Jesus, I want to surrender to you all that I am
And all that I’m striving to be
You are my salvation
You are my hope
As best I can, I open the deepest places of my being to you
Come Holy Spirit dwell within me
Help me hold nothing back from you

ALL SINGING: I Surrender All, verse 3
All to Jesus I surrender; make me, Savior, wholly thine;
Fill me with thy love and power; truly know that thou art mine.
I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

ALL PRAYING:
Give me the strength to surrender my body, soul, and mind
My longings and emotions
All my hopes, plans, and dreams

Grant me courage to surrender my past, present, and future
My hurts, habits, relationships and attitudes
My fears and insecurities
My passion and confidence
My livelihood, resources, talents and skills

ALL SINGING: I Surrender All, verve 4
All to Jesus I surrender; Lord, I give myself to thee;
Fill me with thy love and power; let thy blessing fall on me.
I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.

ALL PRAYING:
Build in me faith and trust
To surrender everything to your compassion and care
All my weaknesses
All my strengths
For better, for worse
For richer, for poorer,
In sickness and in health,
I belong to you

Transform my life into whatever pleases you most
Transform me into the person you desire me to be
Use me for the honor and glory of your name

ALL SINGING: I Surrender All, refrain
I surrender all, I surrender all,
All to thee, my blessed Savior,
I surrender all.
