My Lord and King, Your servant delights in the astonishing power of Your majestic presence in my life. I need You, Jesus. Shine life into the unresponsive darkness of my soul through Your dazzling hues of unsurpassed grace. I want to be awakened to new understanding. I want to be grounded in truth that roots my faith. God, penetrate my empty voids with beams of perfecting light until the empty hollows within are filled with the peace of Your promises. Keep me from chasing the shadows of pleasure in this world when true pleasure only comes from Your hand. True satisfaction can only be found in Your Kingdom. Encompass my moments with merciful truth that shares all You have given me. My soul’s gaze lingers upon the holiness of Your presence in sheer delight. Make me an offering of light by empowering me to shine in the days given me. Empower me through Your Spirit to complete those tasks which You lovingly assigned. Make me fruitful, Lord, as I abide in the vine of Your Word, of Your nearness, of You. Vanquish my inclination to follow shadowy illusions, Lord. Lift me out of the cloaking of life’s pains until Your Spirit dresses me with the radiance of Your righteousness. You are good. You are holy. I am Yours. Under the Word of truth imparted in John 1:1-4 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
The Word (Christ) was in the beginning. The Word was with God. The Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. He made all things. Nothing was made without Him making it. Life began by Him. His Life was the Light for men. The Light shines in the darkness. The darkness has never been able to put out the Light.
John 1:1-4, NLT
