A sermon that challenges an understanding of the word provoke with the strength under control that is humility within the encouragement of the prayer of self-dedication preached on The Twenty-Fifth Sunday After Pentecost (Proper 28) by The Rev. Dr. William Carl Thomas at St. Paulâ€™s Episcopal Church, Beaufort NC on November 14, 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.
