Oh Lord, Your light shines in the darkness. Your light penetrates the darkness. You are contrary to darkness. You are more powerful than darkness. You reveal, You illumine darkness.
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
A Prayer to Pray:
Just as I know that You are Light, I know that there is darkness in me, sin that has not been swept away. Have the brightness of Your glory illuminate my sinfulness.
. . . forgive me for speaking in the flesh, instead of in the Spirit.
. . . forgive me for where I relied on my own power, my own strengths, and talents, instead of on You.
. . . forgive me for withholding words instead of encouraging others.
. . . forgive me for acting like a big shot instead of a servant.
. . . forgive me for exaggerating, for not being honest.
. . . forgive me for listening to thoughts from others rather than thoughts from You.
. . . forgive me for wanting man’s approval.
In You Lord, there is no darkness. . .And amazingly, You forgive me. . . You cleanse me of my sins and wash away all my iniquity. . . and You have given me Your light. Amen.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. (NIV) 2 Corinthians 4:6
In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
