Covenant Service

The Covenant Service, held during early January has special significance to all Methodists. It is a celebration of all that God has done and an affirmation that we give our lives and choices to Him.
During the service we join in a special prayer, printed here so that we can read it through and be prepared to say it on that morning. (This is the modern version, taken from the Methodist Worship Book).

I am no longer my own but yours.
Your will, not mine, be done in all things,
wherever you may place me,
in all that I do
and in all that I may endure;
when there is work for me
and when there is none;
when I am troubled
and when I am at peace.
Your will be done
when I am valued
and when I am disregarded;
when I find fulfilment
and when it is lacking;
when I have all things,
and when I have nothing.
I willingly offer
all I have and am
to serve you,
as and where you choose.
Glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours.
May it be so for ever.
Let this covenant now made on earth
be fulfilled in Heaven. Amen.
