You often require full surrender before You will reveal to us our next steps. Remind us that those things we are reluctant to release will only be lost eventually anyway, and then without the blessings which come through surrendering them.
“Those who know Your name will trust in You” (Ps. 9:10). If there is an area where we have trouble trusting You, show us what we need to know about You that we have not yet understood.
Remind us that often what the world celebrates as “freedom” are really chains of death. Remind us that the only true freedom comes from faith in You and obedience to Your word.
Make us aware of Your steadfast faithfulness even (maybe especially) in the midst of our suffering.
