Holey hands become holy hands when they are often spontaneously raised in praise to The Lamb. As you come to daily understand and experience the consecration prayer, you will come to discover that you have holes in your hands, holes that can no longer hold material things, holes out of which have drained self-centered life, holes in hands that are often lifted spontaneously in praise to The Lamb.
Consecration – a morning prayer
Con (to, add to) secration (the sacred) — consecration (present to, give to God)
Jesus, Lamb of God, You poured out Your life, Your blood, in order that you and I could enjoy each other for eternity. This morning, I pour out my life to you.
This morning again, I give myself to You. I place all my possessions and my very body, soul (mind/will/emotions), and spirit into Your loving hands to do with as You will. I give You my past and my future, my problems and my joys. All are Yours to do with as You will. Thank You for receiving them.
And Lord, Lamb of God, thank you for coming and shedding Your blood for me and letting me know that You are desiring to enjoy me forever. You know the things that are so precious to me that I hesitate to give them up. Yet, seeing You and Your love this morning, I give You permission to make me willing to release those especially precious parts of my life to You.
I receive the fullness of Your Holy Spirit upon me this morning, and I thank You that You have sent Your Spirit within my heart. I trust the Holy Spirit to keep me mindful of Your great love for me throughout this day. Oh, Lord God, I want to love You the way You want me to love You. Grant me faith to realize that hope.
Praise You, Lamb of God. Thank You, Lamb of God, Jesus, my Lord. Amen
