This prayer of John Wesley has been on my heart for a while. I wanted to share it with you (The language has been updated a bit).
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.
And now, glorious and blessed God,Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours. So be it.
And the covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven.Amen.
As I read the prayer, the line that speaks to me is “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…”
The Mark Swayze Band has incorporated the prayer into a song and it has been a favorite of mine since hearing it. I challenge you to pray this prayer throughout the week!
