John Wesley's Covenant Prayer

A Covenant Prayer in the Wesleyan Traditional


I am no longer my own, but thine.
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed by thee or laid aside by thee.
Exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
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 thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
thou art mine, and I am thine.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
Let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.

 


A Covenant Prayer in the Wesleyan Tradition (Contemporary Version) 


I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, place me with whom you will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be put to work for you or set aside for you,
Praised for you or criticized for you.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and fully surrender all things to your glory and service.
And now, O wonderful and holy God,
Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, 
you are mine, and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
Let it also be made in heaven.  Amen.

 

 

Read it. Write it. Ponder it. Pray it.

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

This Week's Reflection

The dawning of each new day is an opportunity to make a fresh, healthy start! As I begin, again, I turn to God, my unfailing source of help. God is my faithful companion and friend, my help in living a happy, healthy, meaningful life.

What will you change this year, in order to be happier and healthier?

Where do you find your deepest joy?

What habits do you have that are worth clinging to? What has worked for you this last year?

What habits do you need to let go of?

Luke 1:78

 

By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us.
