No longer my own

A prayer from a list of prayers on the web site of Vineyard Church of Ann Arbor, available here.

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 by you,
Exalted 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 wholeheartedly yield all things to your pleasure and disposal.

And now, glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
You are mine and I am Yours.
So be it.

And the Covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven.

– A prayer of the Methodist Church
