covenant prayer

I found this today and thought “wow!”

john wesley’s “covenant prayer”

“i am no longer my own, but YOURS.
put me to what YOU will,
rank me with whomever 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!
and now, o FATHER,
YOU are mine and i am YOURS.
so be it.
and the covenant i am making on earth,
let it be ratified in heaven.
amen.”

a pretty awesome prayer for a believer to live under. wesley definitely had allot of stuff right.
