At the Table in Prayer: Bishop Sue to Host Weekly Conversation on the Covenant Prayer
Join us at 6:30 pm Mondays on Facebook
Wesley's Covenant Prayer played an important role in Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson's call to ministry and it continues to be a daily inspiration and guide to her. The prayer, an anchor of our United Methodist tradition, calls us to a missional life centered on Christ.
Beginning January 4, Bishop Sue will host weekly candid conversations with United Methodists across our conference and connection about the Covenant Prayer. Join us live on Monday nights at 6:30 pm on Facebook (www.facebook.com/NGaUMC
) to pray together, listen in on the conversation, and hear the Covenant Prayer again as an extended community of faith. Find recordings of the conversations at ngumc.org/covenant-prayer or at www.vimeo.com/ngumc.
You are encouraged to download and pray this prayer every day. Put it on your refrigerator, tape it to your mirror, frame it and place it on your dresser or post it anywhere it will serve as a reminder to pray and ponder our covenant with God.

Covenant Prayer in the Wesleyan Tradition
“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 by 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. Amen.”
