Allan R. Bevere: A Covenant Prayer for 2013

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/2KroG1JHW10/a-covenant-prayer-for-2013.html


From John Wesley's Covenant Service of 1780:
 
I am no longer my own, but yours.

Put me to what you will,
Rank me with whom you will;

Put me to doing, put me to suffering.

Let me be employed by you,
Or laid aside by you,

Exalted by you or brought low by you.

Let me be full, let me be empty.

Let me have all things, let me have nothing.

I freely and heartily yield all things

To your pleasure and disposal.

And now, O glorious and blessed God,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

you are mine, and I am yours.
So be it.

And the covenant which I have made on earth,

Let it be ratified in heaven.

Amen.
