First Thing Prayer–“the Prayer God Promises to Answer.”

In his terrific new book, “A Different Kind of Happiness: Discovering the Joy that Comes from Sacrificial Love,”  Dr. Larry Crabb offers what he calls a “First thing prayer.”  Crabb says “First thing prayer is the prayer God promises to answer”:

“Whatever the cost, make me a little Christ. Father, may Your Spirit open the eyes of my heart to see your beauty so that I’m left with no greater desire while I live in this world than to reveal Your Son’s love to others by how I relate.”
