My sermon that connects us to Jesus and his very human struggle to hear and respond to the voices of outsiders as we learn to live a prayer of self-dedication preached on The Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost (Proper 18) at St. Paulâ€™s Episcopal Church, Edenton NC on September 5, 2021.
61. A Prayer of Self-Dedication
(Book of Common Prayer Page 832)
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to you, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly yours, utterly dedicated to you; and then use us, we pray, as you will, and always to thy glory and the welfare of your people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
