The Gospel Prayer

Throughout his book, Gospel, J.D. Greear describes what he calls The Gospel Prayer, a four-part way to tie and tether ourselves daily to the person and work of Jesus.

Here ’tis (with a wee bit of reordering and modification):

  1. “In Christ, there is nothing that I can do that would make You love me more perfectly and completely than You do now; and there is nothing that I can do that will cause You to love me less perfectly and completely than You do right now. I am yours. I am safe. You will never let me go.”
  2. “Your presence and approval are all I need today for present and everlasting joy.” 
  3. “Today, I’ll measure Your compassion and forgiveness by the cross and Your power by the resurrection.”
  4. “As You have been to me, so I will be to others.” 

What do you think? Helpful? Not helpful? If helpful, how might your life be different if this became a daily prayer?
