praying: Wesley's Covenant Prayer

On the occasion of starting summer field education placement in Roxboro, NC at Allensville/Trinity UMC:
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.
