John Stott, the well-known author and much-beloved former pastor of All Souls Church in London, begins eacy day with this prayer to each person in the Holy Trinity:

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.

  1. On a quick read, this prayer seems a little redundant. But reading it through a second time reveals a complexity that can only be attributed to a sincere, genuine Christian. I had to re-read the second to last line to understand why John Stott is probably always happy.
