Prayer for Self-Dedication

God,
bless this trembling offering of myself

as I endeavor to touch the lives
of my brothers and sisters
with the sweet and awesome love
You willed me to experience first myself.


Make me Your humble instrument,

a remarkable sign
and efficient bearer of your love,

to your people,

especially to the young.


Help me to choose always

to seek You
in the midst of my brothers and sisters

who are lost, last and least.


Grant that I may be filled with joy in serving You

As I offer myself to work for them.


I make this prayer complete
through Christ
my Lord,

my Savior,

my All.

Amen.
