I’ve had the Wesleyan Covenant Prayer on my mind a lot over the past week:
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 by 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 of earth,
Let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
And then this tweet from Mike Slaughter pops up today:
Feel you can’t have impact because of ur church size, location, resistant people, lack or resources? Gen. 28:16-17. No excuses.
Both are reminders I need daily.
