Maybe the most powerful of all prayer is the prayer when we offer to give our will over to the will of God. We think we know what we want and what’s best and we are free to ask for those things for sure. But more often, what’s best is not what we think we want or need but it’s what God wants. The prayer of surrender is more than just a willingness to obey God, it is a search for who God is and what he wants. Yielding in prayer is based on a profound trust in the goodness and rightness of God to allow him to guide and direct us.
