How John Stott Begins Each Day

John ArmstrongSpirituality

A few weeks ago I wrote about beginning each new day in prayer to each person in the Holy Trinity. A member of our ACT 3 board, Marc Payne, was once a member of John Stott’s congregation at All Souls Church, Langham Place, in London. After he read that blog he sent to me the prayer that his pastor prayed each morning. I found so very helpful and thus I thought you would as well.

Good morning heavenly Father. Good morning Lord Jesus. Good morning Holy Spirit. Father I pray that I may live this day in Your presence and please You more and more. Lord Jesus I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow You. Holy Spirit I pray that this day You will fill me with Yourself and cause Your fruit to ripen in my life, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Holy, blessed and glorious Trinity, three Persons in one God, have mercy upon me, Amen.
