At our first World Convention in 1976, Sister Gwen Shaw led us in a spontaneous prayer of dedication. We felt that this prayer was to become the “vows” that we take when joining the End-Time Handmaidens and Servants. We believe that it is a prayer that any serious-hearted Christian should be able to pray with sincerity.
END-TIME HANDMAIDENS/SERVANTS VOWS
Lord, I give myself to You;
I give my life to You.
I want to be your End-Time Handmaiden/Servant;
I feel Your call;
I believe I was sent
To do the will of my Father.
I will take orders from You.
I will submit to You.
I will let You break my will.
I will not seek for comfort
Nor high position,
Nor to do what I want to do.
Mine is the humblest task,
Or the most dangerous task;
By the grace of God I will do it.
I will sleep where You want me to sleep,
I will eat what you give me to eat,
And when I have nothing, I will not complain.
If I go to prison I will rejoice.
And I will praise You
Because You’ve been to prison for me.
I love You, Jesus;
I thank You for calling me,
And that You want me,
And that You can use me;
And all I can say is,
“Send the Fire and burn up the sacrifice.
Fill me with Thy Holy Spirit
And give me a double portion of Thine anointing.”
