Grace Based Prayers

From J.D. Greear’s new book Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary come these suggested themes for “gospel prayer”:
  1. In Christ, there is nothing I can do that would make You love me more, and nothing I have done that makes You love me less.
  2. Your presence and approval are all I need for everlasting joy.
  3. As You have been to me so I will be to others.
  4. As I pray, I’ll measure Your compassion by the cross and Your power by the resurrection.
