John Wesley's Covenant Prayer

Join me if you would like in praying this prayer during Lent: 


Covenant    Prayer

From   John   Wesley's   Covenant   Service ,  1780 

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.

How Do You Abide in Christ?

What do these particular verses mean to you, and how do they influence your prayer?


From John 15

1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

Just Feel a Prayer

9651001893?profile=originalIf I really wanted to pray I'll tell you what I'd do. I'd go out into a great big field alone or into the deep, deep woods, and I'd look up into the sky - up - up - up - into that lovely blue sky that looks like there's no end to its blueness. And then I'd just feel a prayer. ~L.M. Montgomery

...the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know what prayers to offer nor in what way to offer them. But the Spirit Himself pleads for us in yearnings that can find no words... Romans 8:26
