How astonishing is the power of Your beauty, my Lord and God. The light of Your majesty is worthy of all praise and adoration. In dazzling hues of unfathomable grace, You shine life into the unresponsive darkness of my soul. Let me be awakened with the gentle nudge of Your Holy Spirit as You, alone, can impart understanding to my ignorant soul. Your beams of love have power to penetrate the void of emptiness that creates a hollow within me. I cry out to You, Jesus. Let the filling begin so that every space within me is occupied by Your Holy Spirit. Turn me away from the shadows that I chase as You draw me into the light which encompasses all truth. Your light illuminates the face of my soul so that I can gaze upon the glimmer of holiness in my God. Your light turned on within me by the power of Your presence grants me life. Lord, let me be Your offering. Empower me to shine in the darkness to which I have been assigned. Lead me not to linger in the coolness of the shadows of this world when the powerful warmth of the illuminating light of Your love has come down in Christ. Under the canopy of John 1:4-5 and the authority of Jesus Christ, I humbly pray in the light.
Eternal life is in Him, and this life gives light to all mankind.
His life is the light that shines through the darkness—
and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:4-5, TLB
