John Stott (1921-2011) Anglican pastor and theologian had this as his morning prayer:
“Heavenly 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.”
Not a bad way to start the day.
“When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come.” Jesus
