I almost used this prayer for Believing Prayer today, but finally opted to do something original. It expresses beautifully the full dependence on God.

Grant us grace, O God, to take your Son for our Redeemer, his life for our example, his word for our rule, his Spirit for our guide, his wounds for our healing and his cross for our salvation, that he may take possession of our hearts, now and for ever. Amen.

—Jeremy Taylor (1613-1657)
