“We See A New Church”
The Wesleyan Covenant Prayer invites complete humility and obedience to God’s service, asking God to work through us or work around us. It says,
“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 for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty…”
The Covenant Prayer explains how John Wesley’s Methodist faith movement created a new church during the period of complex change in his time. The early Methodists practiced what they prayed.
What we pray really matters to us. The 7:11 (or Breakthrough) Prayer really matters to the life of our congregation. I believe the prayer leads us to a new church. Through the new sermon series, I would like to explore and learn about how we live as disciples in the world and how AUMC becomes a new church for the purpose of Christ.
