In Commemoration of John Wesley
This, "A Prayer of Submission," comes from A Collection of Forms of Prayer (1733), and was sent to us by The Reverend LaNell Johnson:
I give you my body. May I glorify you with it, and preserve it holy,
fit for you, O God, to dwell in. May I neither indulge it,
nor use too much rigor toward it; but keep it, as far as in me lies,
healthy, vigorous, and active, and fit to do you
all manner of service that you shall call for.
— John Wesley
