Powerful is the light of the bright morning star which pierced the darkness of deceit currently blinding Your beloved, Lord God. The warmth of Your divine love, conspicuous in its incongruity which allows perfection to cast light onto the imperfect, thaws my frozen, hardened heart. When the rifts of life trials vex me, Your presence calms me, bringing the peace that only comes from You, Jesus. For though I provoke You with my perpetual idolatry, You are ready with pardon when I repent with eyes opened to the light. Secure me in the palm of Your mighty hand, Lord. You alone are my sustenance. You alone can give me true sight. Lord, let the truth be engraved upon my heart. Let the power of eternal affection slay the loneliness that darkens my thoughts. You are often closer to me in the silence of the darkness than I have the ability to recognize. In those seasons of fleshly blindness lead me back to the perpetual light of truth which grounds my soul and marks the steps of faith set before me. To my Savior I will cling for light and life. Under the beauty of Your Word in John 1:4-5 and the authority of Christ Jesus I humbly pray.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and His life brought light to everyone.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.
John 1:4-5, NLT
