New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Praying with John Wesley
David A. deSilva
• October 2003
Praying with John Wesley is based on the model for daily prayer developed by Wesley in 1733. Centered on 6 Christian virtues, it includes daily scripture reading, personal reflection, and prayer. While remaining true to Wesleys intent and emphasis, DeSilva has updated and interpreted Wesleys prayers to be used by 21st-century Christians who are seeking to grow as disciples, taking the reader through one full week of morning and evening devotions.
We encourage readers to use this guide through several weekly cycles. The first time through youll learn about the virtues and begin to wrestle with their meaning and value. By repeating the cycle, your understanding will deepen.
Perfect for the Advent season or for Lenten reflection.
