    To my mind, I think the below prayer is a  beautiful  follow-up to the devotion on July 7, 2016 on the “Devotional Forum.” My reasoning is this- I think as soon as we accept the fact that it is all about God and not about ourselves, the sooner we will want to do something about it.

    Let me hasten to add, the couple of us at present who read these forums may not need this, but it is  my hope that in the future as others join us, it might become relevant.

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