A prayer from another century!

The following prayer was on our church community newsletter today and a couple of lines particularly jumped out at me! Take from it that which speaks to you.

John Wesley's Prayer

I am no longer my own but yours,
Put me to what you will
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be employed for you or laid aside for you.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things to Your
pleasure and disposal
And now glorious and blessed God, Father, Son
and Holy Spirit, You are mine and I am yours.
So be it.
And this covenant now made on earth, let it be
satisfied in heaven.
