The Prayer of Full Surrender

The Prayer of Full Surrender

The following is a message given by Dr. Walter L. Wilson (1881-1969) at the Canadian Keswick Conference about his experience with the Higher Christian Life.  This message was reprinted in the October 1936 issue of “The Evangelical Christian” and also in the tract, “The Secret of Soul Winning.”  The name of the article is “Whose Body is Yours?” and provides a wonderful glimpse into the process the Spirit took Dr. Wilson to discover the Higher Christian Life and his prayer of full surrender.

Enjoy and be blessed and encouraged in your own search for the Higher Christian life.


“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”
John 14:16-17

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Romans 12:1

Because there exists in these days a great desire in the heart for, and a confusion in the mind concerning the Spirit-filled life, or the path of consecration, it may help to clear this matter if I tell you of my own experience with the Lord, the Spirit.

It was my privilege to be raised among a group of believers who were quite orthodox in their teaching, and quite earnest in studying the Word.  It was among these that I first trusted the Lord Jesus in December 1896.  He saved me and changed my life.  Immediately the Word of God became my constant companion.  I loved it, studied it, preached it, and gave away tracts in large quantities.  No apparent success followed my labors, and much energy produced little fruit.  This failure disturbed me greatly, but I assured myself and was assured by others that we were not to look for results but only to be busy at seed sowing.
