Ordination

FamilyOn Wednesday evening the Assemblies of God officially conferred upon me the designation of ordained. I am both thrilled and humbled, honored and slightly overwhelmed.

For this next chapter of my life, this prayer of John Wesley is my prayer too—

“Lord Jesus, if You will receive me into Your house, if You want but only me as Your servant, I will not stand upon terms; impose upon me what condition You please, write down Your own articles, command me what You will, put me to anything You see as good; let me come under Your roof, let me be Your servant. … Make me what You will, Lord, and set me where You will. … I put myself wholly into Your hands: 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 trodden under foot for You; let me be full, let me be empty, let me have all things, let me have nothing, I freely and heartily resign all to Your pleasure and disposal. … So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.” —John Wesley

    Incredible prayer Craig… As a friend, I am praying for God’s will to be done in your life, with your life… and for so many other lives to be affected and changed by His great work.
