Jesus said “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but have the light of life.”

John 8:12 NIV

Each new day,
The darkness gives way
To dawn, and to light.
The light penetrates,
The light illuminates,
The light warms,
The softens hearts,
The light leads the way.

The light is life,
The light is love,
The light is healing,
The light is wisdom,
The light is justice,
The light is freedom,
The light is Jesus.

Loving God, we thank You for Jesus, the light of life.  As we spend time and reflect with You, draw us closer to your heart, to the light of your love in Jesus ….

Jesus said ” You are like a light for the whole world.  A city built on a hill cannot be hid.”*

Gracious God, may the light of your love shine in our hearts that we may be a light and hope for others ….

May the light of your love open our eyes more fully to your living, loving presence in this world ….

May the light of your love reveal the needs of others and enable us to love, care and act with the grace of Jesus ….

May your Holy Spirit shine the light of your love in Jesus and transform hearts, lives, homes and communities ….

We prayerfully consider how we may be a light in someone’s life today ….

Loving God, may your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.**
