The Sunday Journal
An inspiring publication to help believers grow their faith in God to become more committed in following Jesus along the Way
Christian discipleship is summed up in the Prayer of St. Richard:
Praise be to you, my Lord Jesus Christ,
For all the benefits which you have given me;
For all the pains and insults which you have borne for me. O most merciful Redeemer, Friend, and Brother;
May I know you more clearly; May I love you more dearly; May I follow you more nearly; Day by day.
The whole purpose of Christian discipleship is to know God more thoroughly; to love him more devotedly; to serve him more loyally; each passing day. Living out this prayer makes us become
friends of God through Jesus Christ.
You may like to include the prayer of Saint Richard in with your daily devotions for the next week or so.
Use it with the special intention of deepening your commitment as a follower of Jesus.
