This month with ROOTS, we are reading Gospel by J.D. Greear. As an outline for his book, J.D. provides four statements in the form of a prayer intended to internalize and rehearse the gospel on a regular basis. Here’s the Gospel Prayer. I encourage you to reflect on these statements and continue to rediscover the bottomless depths of the glorious gospel.
The Gospel Prayer
“Father, there is nothing I can do today that would make you love me more; nothing I failed to do yesterday made you love me less.”
“Father, your presence and approval are all I need today for everlasting joy.”
“Father, as you have been to me, so I will be to others.”
“Father, I’ll measure your compassion by the cross and your power by the resurrection and pray accordingly.”
