"God, I offer myself to Thee to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory of them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy power, Thy love, and Thy way of life. May I do Thy will always."
