Psa. 37:4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart.

Psa. 37:5 Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.  AMP

 

  1. The prayer of consecration

John 5:30 I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me.  AMP

 

John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven not to do My own will and purpose but to do the will and purpose of Him Who sent Me.  AMP

 

Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me; neither do I esteem my life dear to myself, if only I may finish my course with joy and the ministry which I have obtained from [which was entrusted to me by] the Lord Jesus, faithfully to attest to the good news (Gospel) of God’s grace (His unmerited favor, spiritual blessing, and mercy).  AMP

Phil. 2:13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.  NKJV

 

Phil. 2:13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey him and the power to do what pleases him.  NLT
