Father God, Creator of the universe and great light of the world, illumine the darkness in my life by the power of Your divine love which shines as a beacon of life to all who are looking for it. Lead me with Your tender generosity. Cover me with the beauty of truth so that the ugliness of lies I have agreed to does not taint my soul. Paint the canvas of my heart with the stunning hues of grace so that I become the masterpiece designed by Your hand that You envisioned me being before I was even born. Rescue me from myself, Jesus, as You pull me into the refuge of Your bright, shining inheritance. You have given me all that I need and everything my soul deeply desires by granting me Your entire self in the form of love’s sacrifice upon the cross. Under the majesty of 1 Peter 1:4-5 and the blessed authority of Christ Jesus, I set these prayers as a fragrant offering to You in humility and awe of Your grace, O God who guards me.
