Lord, be the ruler of my heart.
I yield the throne to Thee.
I pray no selfishness nor pride, nor treasures that I see,
usurp the throne or take command to lead my flesh astray.
May you be King, and Lord of all that’s in my life today.
Lord, be the ruler of my soul.
My thoughts, so often wrong, can keep me out of touch with you.
The devil’s pull is strong. Yet, stronger still, your pull of love
has led me here today to ask you, Lord, to take control.
Yes, be my King today.
