Joining Others Around God’s Word | The Spirit of Adoption

AUTHOR: Gabriel Coyle

Campus Pastor - Downtown

As you prepare to gather with the church to hear God’s Word today, pray that the Holy Spirit would intercede for us before the Father.

We will be guided by John Stott’s prayer to the Triune God each week throughout this series. Let’s pray it again this morning:

​​Good morning heavenly Father,
good morning Lord Jesus,
good morning Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father, I worship you as the creator and sustainer of the universe.
Lord Jesus, I worship you, Savior and Lord of the world.
Holy Spirit, I worship you, sanctifier of the people of God.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Heavenly 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.

– John Stott, quoted in Basic Christian: The Inside Story of John Stott

Prayer tills the soil of the soul to receive the word of God. Take time today resting, delighting and listening to God in prayer. Take 10 minutes today to pray for God to speak afresh through His word, and that you would have “ears to hear and eyes to see” His truth and direction.
