Prayer Request

God is listening.  He hears you.  Even when our words simply won't come, God's Spirit will help us in our weakness, interceding "with sighs too deep for words." (Romans 8:26)  Prayer works.  It heals.  It changes minds.  It changes lives.  It is a unique, powerful, and effective way for us to place ourselves in the arms of our Heavenly Father and to cast our cares upon Him.

Wesleyan Covenant Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,

Let me be your servant,

under your command.

I am no longer my own,

but yours.

Put me to what you will,

rank me with whom you will;

put me to doing,

put me to suffering.

Let me be employed for you

or laid aside for you,

enabled for you

or brought low for you. 

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 your pleasure

and disposal.
