John Wesley's Prayer

I ran across this in my devotional. It is a prayer by John Wesley and is called The Covenant Prayer:
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 hope and service.  And now, O glorious and blessed 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 be made also in heaven. Amen!
This prayer is about our journey with God. It is about surrendering everthing, and most importantly, it is about faith.  Even in our darkest ours of suffering or our time on this earth, if we trust in Jesus Christ, He will be with us.  Knowing that the pain and suffering we are going through at times on this Earth leads us closer to Christ. It is our Covenant with Him.  Read Jeremiah 29:11
