Prayer for Lordship Over Your Life

“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.” — Matthew 22:37-38, NLT

The Lordship Prayer

Pray this prayer to invite Jesus to be the Lord and Master of each area of your life.

Jesus, I confess that I have sinned and I acknowledge my need of You as Lord and Savior. I thank You for dying on the cross for me and I accept You as my Savior. I invite You now to be Lord of every area of my life:

  • Be Lord over my spirit, all of my worship and my relationship with God;

  • Be Lord over my mind, all of my thoughts, all of my attitudes and behaviors;

  • Be Lord over my emotions, my imagination, and my reactions;

  • Be Lord over my will and all of my decisions;

  • Be Lord over my body and physical health;

  • Be Lord over my eyes, vision and all that I look upon;

  • Be Lord over my ears and all that I listen to;

  • Be Lord over my mouth and all of the words that I speak;

  • Be Lord of my hands, plans, goals and all that I do;

  • Be Lord of my feet and everywhere I go;

  • Be Lord over my sexuality and its expression;

  • Be the Lord of my family, my entire home, all of my pleasure, recreation and relationships.

  • Be Lord over my time, my work and all of my service to You;

  • Be Lord over my material goods, my possessions, all of my finances, and all of my needs.

Thank you Jesus that Your blood was shed to set me free.

You and You alone are my Lord and Master, Amen.
