Daily Prayers with Dr. James Stone


Heavenly Father,

I realize that it is my own mind that strives to know what is good and what is evil so that I, myself, in my own capability can control my life. Without the capability to know, I could never recognize and appreciate the God that you are. But, I also know that capability gives me the susceptibility to live in my own knowing and thereby attempt to create many acts of religious goodness.


I have come to realize that my religion will kill me. Deliver me from my self- righteousness that I might experience your righteousness. Jesus live in me, let your grace flow through me, and let your Spirit control me.

Jesus you are my life.
