Covenant Prayer By: John Wesley

John Wesley (1703-1791), founder of Methodism

Tonight I am teaching on the “Thy will be done” portion of the Lord’s Prayer. I came across this prayer by Methodist Evangelist John Wesley that sums up the heart of this section very well:

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.
