Wesley 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 for thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for 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 on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.

    Pray for Chimere and I, Jamal that we can come on one accord as parents for our daughter sake, our daughter is only six year old. Pray that we can come in an agreement with unity, love, and peace. Pray that God will remove Hilda Cobbs out of our lives and out of the way because she’s the course of these problems and confusing. The devil is working in Hilda and my six year old daughter is the one getting hurt by not seeing her mother (Chimere) and father (Jamal) not working together, it’s really bothering my six year old daughter. Chimere and I, Jamal need to working together for our daughter sake but Hilda got everything messed up very bad. Chimere and I, Jamal do not live together but I would like my family to be restore back in unity, love, and peace.
