For years, I’ve used Scotty Smith’s book of daily prayers Everyday Prayers: 365 Days to a Gospel-Centered Faith as a part of my devotional reading. Here are 25 of my favorite quotes from his prayers:
- Father, forgive me when my worship varies in response to my perceptions of how well and quick you answer my prayers.
- Come, Holy Spirit, come. We need you to stir our hearts. Only you are powerful enough to resalt the desalted; to bring us back to gospel sanity; to restore in us the joy of God’s salvation; to reengage the disengaged with God’s plan for our communities, the cities, and the nations.
- Jesus, today and every day, we declare that our hope is built on nothing else, nothing less, and nothing more than you and what you’ve done for us on the cross.
