The Gospel Prayer

I'm learning to pray "the Gospel Prayer" from JD Greear's book Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary.

"...there's nothing magical about this prayer.  It's not an incantation to get God to do good things for you. Incidentally, it's also no my attempt to replace the Lord's Prayer. This prayer is simply a tool to help you train your mind in the patterns of the gospel. The point is not the prayer; the point is thinking in line with the gospel." - Gospel, page 40

Have I mentioned that this is a really GREAT book?
