Amy Carmichael’s Dohnavur Fellowship:

 

My Vow:

 Whatsoever Thou sayest unto me, by Thy grace,

I will do it.

My Constraint:

Thy love, oh Christ, My Lord.

My Confidence:

Thou art able to keep that which I have committed unto Thee.

My Joy:

To do thy will, Oh God.

My Discipline:

That which I would not choose, but which Thy love appoints.

My Prayer:

Conform my will to Thine.

My Motto:

Love to live, and live to love.

My Portion:

The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance.

 Teach us, good Lord, to serve Thee as Thou deserves;

To give and not count the cost;

To fight and not to heed the wounds;

To toil and not to seek for rest;

To labor and not to ask for any reward

save that of knowing that we do thy will,

Oh Lord our God.

 

(A Chance to Die, by Elisabeth Elliot, p241-242
