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 for thee or laid aside 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 I have made on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
A Covenant Prayer in the Wesleyan Tradition
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
What do you do around New Year's Day? Do you review the year that is ending? Do you evaluate how you can do better in the new year than you did in the old year?
