Wesley’s Covenant Prayer I am no longer my own, but Yours. Put me to what You will. Rank me with whom You will. Put me to doing. Put me to suffering. Let me be employed by You or laid aside for You. Exalted for You or brought low for You. Let me be full, let me be empty. I freely and heartily yield all things to Your Pleasure and Disposal. And now O Glorious & Blessed God, Father, Son and Spirit, You are mine & I am Yours.
