I have been in thought on renewal for 2017. I’m not a fan of resolutions. But I am a champion of renewal through the Holy Spirit. Since I believe prayer is the means by which God changes us, and not so much the world, I have chosen to add to my daily prayers in 2017 the Wesleyan Covenant Prayer. I invite you to join me.

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.

Blessings on your journey with Christ in 2017.
