No Longer My Own

This morning our priest read this beautiful prayer from the Methodist Covenant Service.

“I am no longer my own but yours.

Put me to what you will,

rank me with whom you will;

put me to doing, put me to suffering;

let me be employed for you or laid aside for you,

exalted for you or brought low for you;

let me be full, let me be empty,

let me have all things, let me have nothing;

I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things

to your pleasure and disposal.”

    Thank you for posting this Rachel. Such a beautiful prayer! And so difficult to pray it. I confess that I don’t want to suffer or be laid aside or brought low or emptied. But I do pray that I will follow where Christ leads, and that I will yield all to him.

    Rachel,

    Wishing you and your family a blessed New Year.

    John
