25 Christmas Prayers – Day 23
Day 23 – Light of the World
Jesus, how many times have we stumbled through the dark in the middle of the night trying to find our own way? Why would we choose to go through life the same way? You are the Light of the World, shining in the darkness.
And while we want to see clearly what lies beyond each turn, You will be our flashlight, giving us only as much light as we need for the moment. How foolish to live in the dark after seeing the Light!
No Place Too Dark
Wherever we go, Lord, You are a light by day and a beacon by night, shining brightly to point us in the right direction. There is no place too dark for Your light to shine and no corner too remote. Like sunshine on a cloudy day, You burst forth with radiance.
People Still Walk in Darkness
Jesus, there are still people walking in darkness who have never seen Your light. How they need You! They’ve never known the joy and freedom You give to those with trusting hearts.
Like a Candle in the Dark
This Christmas, help each of us to be that “little light” that shines in the darkness for others. Shine Your light into every corner of our own lives so nothing will hinder our fellowship with You, or our usefulness in guiding others to You. Use us to point others to the true Light of the World. May our gifts of love, our words of encouragement, our hugs of acceptance, and our thoughtful deeds be like candles in the darkness that say to our world, “God loves You…and so do I!”
You Are the Light of Our Lives
This Christmas, we celebrate because God sent the True Light of the World to shine in the darkness of our hearts. We worship You, Jesus! You are not only the Light of the World; You are the Light of our lives!
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 NIV
