We prayed the Wesley Covenant Prayer this morning at our last service of 2017.

I have a hard time with it in some ways because it’s difficult. It’s easy to think of how I know I will fail its pledges multiple times in the coming year. I have to remind myself that I am expected to fail, but that I am also expected to aspire.

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.
