Covenant Service: Discipleship Series: The Need of Disciples
As Methodists, we say the Covenant Prayer every year. But it can be a scary prayer. Rather than get bogged down in the details of the prayer, let us understand that it is, at its core, about recognizing Jesus needs us, and consciously say to Jesus, "I will try. I consciously commit myself to doing my best for God and to being a builder of his Kingdom in whatever sphere of influence God has placed me."
This is the culmination of our Discipleship Series - the Covenant Service. In this service, we pray the following prayer (written by John Wesley) as part of our recommitment to God.
You are mine, and I am yours.
