August 14 Prayer
‘Surely God is my salvation! I will trust and will not be afraid for the lord is my strength and my song; he has given me the victory’
When reading this verse ,‘In God there is no darkness at all, for he is light.1John1:5 I hear this question, Are you afraid of the dark?
Where is darkness, in the world it is not hard to find. But is there any darkness in me and what am I afraid of?
Come into the loving presence of God who is the light of life and let his light fill every part of you.
Jesus, our brother, friend and savior came to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, he will guide us to the path of peace.’Luke1:79
He tells us, I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who puts their trust in me will no longer remain in darkness.’ John12:49
So let’s do that right now, put all our trust in him and pray.
‘ Lord, we breathe in the light of life and let your light rise upon us like the morning sun. Everything that we are afraid of, the future, our families, our jobs we give to you now and receive the grace to believe and trust in your saving power.
We thank you that we can sing and praise you when we are afraid and know that Father God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit work together to bring light where there is darkness. We thank you that the final enemy to be destroyed is death, so we need not ever fear death. John.8:12
Let your light be so bright to guide our feet into the way of life and peace.
Praise be to God our strength and our salvation.
