Covenant Prayer by John Wesley

I was reminded of this powerful prayer of surrender today while learning from Adam Hamilton's book and video journey, 24 Hours That Changed the World. During this season of Lent, I invite you to pray these words of John Wesley every day.


Covenant Prayer by John Wesley

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 by 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.

  1. Amen! As Lent goes on, I need this prayer more. May it be more true for me each day, Lord. May my choices bless Your holy name.
