Wesley Covenant Prayer

December 26, 2016

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.


As used in the Book of Offices of the British Methodist Church, 1936. The modern usage can be found in The United Methodist Church Covenant Renewal Service liturgy.

The prayer has always been one that I have used for the first Sunday of the New Year (Wesley Covenant/Communion Service) and it can also be found on page 607 of our UM Hymnal.
