Christopher Ian Chenoweth's personal covenant with God.
Dear God, I will make the most out of every SINGLE day by giving myself in total to you. I
pray that no one will ever come to me without leaving better or happier. I will allow you,
God, to come through me, and use me for your glory, and not my own. Help me to be a living
expression of your divine joy, kindness, and love. I will strive to be the prayer connecting
link between the doubt in people, and the all of God, the unhappiness, and the joy of God,
the sickness, and the health of God, the poverty, and the wealth of God and the confusion,
and the clear guidance of God. I will pray without doubt, with certainty thinking because I
know nothing is impossible with God. I choose a life of service to people no matter what
their religious faith or background. I will give of myself freely knowing you will support my
every need. I pray, that when I pray with another person, your words, energy and light will
touch the other person in such a way that a lasting, positive change takes place during the
prayer. God use me, think through me, speak through me, pray through me so that I may help
with the highest possible help on earth. I will live my life to manifest the Christ in me. I
will live a harmless, gentle, joy-filled life. I will uplift humanity by giving prayer, hope,
joy, and love to at least one person every day of my life. In Jesus Christ's name, I
