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 pray.
