The Wesley Covenant Prayer has been used in Methodist services around the world on the first Sunday of the year since John Wesley introduced it in 1755. Wesley expected that people would pray this prayer as a way of remembering, renewing, and surrendering themselves in complete trust to God.
In The Wesley Prayer Challenge, author Chris Folmsbee invites readers to consider words from the Wesley Covenant Prayer each day for three weeks, while reflecting on their meaning in the context of the larger piece.
In this session, author Chris Folmsbee discusses the first lines of the Wesley Covenant Prayer and the themes of surrender and suffering. This session introduces the challenge to go deeper into one’s faith by praying the prayer.
