Covenant Renewal Service This Sunday

This Sun­day at Mt. Zion we will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in a Covenant Renew­al Ser­vice in which we will renew our covenant with God. This is a very impor­tant and mean­ing­ful ser­vice and it is one that requires some soul search­ing and prepa­ra­tion. Attached is the Covenant Prayer which is includ­ed in the ser­vice on Sun­day. I gave this prayer to the con­gre­ga­tion on Sun­day and issued them the invi­ta­tion to read and think about this prayer at least once a day every day this week so that our minds and hearts will be bet­ter pre­pared to renew our covenant rela­tion­ship with God. I hope that we will all come to church this Sun­day with a renewed desire to love God and an eager­ness to serve him with all of our strength in 2014. God Bless you as you par­tic­i­pate in this time of self exam­i­na­tion and renewal.

I tru­ly love and appre­ci­ate you all,

Pas­tor Donald

Wesley’s Covenant Prayer

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 by 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 in earth,
let it be rat­i­fied in heav­en. Amen.
