A prayer by John Stott
Good morning, Heavenly Father;
Good morning Lord Jesus;
Good morning Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father, I worship you
as the Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
Lord Jesus, I worship you,
Saviour and Lord of the world.
Holy Spirit, I worship you,
Sanctifier of the people of God.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit.
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.
