A Covenent Prayer in the Wesleyan Tradition (UMH 607)

I found this prayer in the United Methodist Hymnal (UMH) and it is very meaningful. So I thought of sharing it out here. It talks of our dedication for Christ and allowing God to use us for whatever plans He has for us.

"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 for 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."

from: The United Methodist Hymnal, 1989 The United Methodist Publishing House

Soli Deo Gloria!!!!

I am created unique by God. I am God's child. God is my Father. A sinner but saved by the grace and mercy of God through the faith that he has given me.
