Prayer was a big component of how J.D. strengthens his faith. He's written a four-part prayer that encompasses the message of the gospel that he wants to seep into every area of his life.
  • In Christ, there is nothing I could do to make You love me more; nothing I have done that makes You love me less. 
  • You are all I need today for everlasting joy.
  • As You have been to me, so I will be to others.
  • As I pray, I’ll measure Your compassion by the cross and Your power by the resurrection.
