Covenant Prayer

The Benefice of Upper Wensleydale

Covenant Prayer for 2022

I am no longer my own but yours.

Your will, not mine, be done in all things,
wherever you may place me,

In all that I do and in all that I may endure;

when there is work for me and when there is none;

when I am troubled and when I am at peace.

 Your will be done:

when I am valued and when I am disregarded,

when I find fulfilment and when it is lacking;

when I have all things and when I have nothing.  

 I willingly offer all that I have and am to serve you,  as and where you choose.


Glorious God,

You are mine and I am yours.

May it be so for ever.

Let this covenant now made on earth

be fulfilled in heaven.
