Jesus calls us to be peacemakers, both in terms of preventing bloodshed, and building constructive links with God, ourselves, and other people. For the next 40 days of Lent, we will offer The Peace Prayer Project—40 days of prayers for peace…peace in the world, peace for the weary, suffering and sick and peace in our own lives. Here is a prayer written by The Rev. Michaela Youngson of British Methodist Church that could be prayed every day of Lent along with the other prayers offered on our Facebook and Instagram pages each day.
Go to our Facebook or Instagram page to see all the daily prayers during Lent.
A Covenant Prayer in the Wesleyan Tradition
I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, place me with whom you will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering.
Let me be put to work for you or set aside for you,
Praised for you or criticized for you.
Let me be full, let me be empty.
Let me have all things, let me have nothing.
I freely and fully surrender all things to your glory and service.
And now, O wonderful and holy God,
Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer,
you are mine, and I am yours.
So be it.
And the covenant which I have made on earth,
Let it also be made in heaven. Amen.
