Prayer of Self-Dedication from the Book of Common Prayer

Praying this prayer today...

Almighty and Eternal God,

So draw our hearts to Thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly Thine, utterly dedicated  unto Thee; and then use us, we pray Thee as Thou wilt, and always to Thy glory and the welfare of Thy people, through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Amen

I know the language is old, but there is something powerful about praying a prayer of surrender to God that so many have prayed before us.  Love the heart of this prayer.
