A prayer for HPUMC as we seek to move Beyond our OurselvesBY: Jenny Misslin
Each week of the Beyond Campaign we will have an opportunity to pray together. By taking time to pause in our homes, our small groups, and our classes we hope that each person at HPUMC will reflect on how they are a part of the Holy work of God through this congregation.
This week as we focus on moving beyond ourselves, it is only fitting that we pray John Wesley’s Covenant Prayer.
The Covenant Prayer of 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 for 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.
