a Trinitarian prayer

The Trinity Window at Holy Trinity Church, Hertford, UK.  
"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, Saviour and Lord of the world.

Holy Spirit, I worship you, Sanctifier of the people of God.

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."

~ The Morning Prayer of John Stott (1921-2011) as found in The One True Light: Daily Advent Readings from the Gospel of John, by Tim Chester.
