This method can help you daily give God control of your life by using the six major parts of the body as a guide for what specifically to turn over to God. You can turn over additional things as well.
“And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” Romans 6:13
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the Holy Spirit living within me. I yield to You and ask that the Holy Spirit will take full control of my life using these six parts of the body as a guide: mind, eyes, ear, mouth, hands and feet.
Mind: I ask that You will allow my mind to think only on what You want and not on the things I shouldn’t be thinking about.
Eyes: Have my eyes look at what You want me to see, and not anything detrimental to me.
Ears: Allow my ears to hear what You want me to hear instead of negativity.
Mouth: Direct me to say what is pleasing to You and to not say things that could be hurtful to anybody.
Hands: Guide me to do things that are gratifying to You and keep me from the activities that are not helpful to me.
Feet: Direct me to walk to places that are pleasing in Your sight and turn me from any roads that lead to destruction.
Thank you that when all these parts of my body are under the control of the Holy Spirit I am able to lay aside my own desires and instinctive actions, enabling me to grow in my Christian walk.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
