The people stand.
The minister says:
Let us pray:
Holy One, in baptism,
you brought us into union with Christ who fulfils your gracious covenant;
and in bread and wine we receive the fruit of his obedience.
So with joy we take upon ourselves the yoke of obedience,
and commit ourselves to seek and do your perfect will.
Silence is kept for a time.
Let us say together:
I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will,
rank me with whom you will;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for you or laid aside for you;
exalted for you or brought low for you;
let me be full, let me be empty;
let me have all things, let me have nothing;
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things
to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours,
to the glory and praise of your name.
