The Covenant Prayer

I recently learned about The Covenant Prayer, written in 1663. I thought I would share this powerful prayer with you today.

______________________

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.
