A Prayer of Abandonment to God

I am no longer my own, but Yours.
Use me as You choose;
rank me alongside whoever You choose;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for You,
or laid aside for You,
raised up for You, or brought down low for You;
let me be full, let me be empty;
let me have all things, let me have nothing;
with my whole heart I freely choose to yield
all things to Your ordering and approval.
So now, God of glory,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
You are mind, and I am Your own.

Adapted from the Methodist Covenant Prayer
