Traditional Covenant

Joh Wesley adapted the Wesley Covenant Service and used it in renewal services.It was first used On August 11, 1755. The words still ring true today. Perhaps you would like to speak it with God today and renew your own personal commitment.

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.
Amen.

as used in the Book of Offices of the British Methodist Church, 1936

Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.

(Ephesians 6:13-18, MSG)

Prayer- Lord, thank you for the thinking prayers of others that clarify our own thoughts. Amen.
