December 3 Prayer
Settle yourself to be present to God's presence with you.
‘In the beginning was the Word.
The Word was with God,and the Word was God.
Everything came into being by him.
All things...The whole world came into being through him..’
We came into being through Him, the light, the life, the living expression of the trinity.
And we are still being created, becoming into being in Him.
His presence is always a gift for us to embrace or reject.
The light that comes into our own darkness is truth and grace to shine upon us.
The word, God, became like us, human so he knows what darkness is.
Through his creative power we are becoming children of God as we receive his light.
Christ is the living expression of God and now dwells in us to be light in the world.
Thanks be to God that this is the work of grace and not of our own making.
Pause to pray and ponder what it is that you need to be this gift of presence in the world…
‘Lord, we are all coming into being through You, the light, life and word of truth and grace.
We ask for what we need now to be present to your presence in us.
To be grounded in your unfailing love and faithfulness.
To know that your light is in us to carry out into the world.
We confess that our own darkness at times can seem to overshadow your light.
We thank you that no matter how dark these days become that your light can never be extinguished.
For true light enlightens everyone!
May it be so, Lord Jesus Come.
Shine your light in us and through us today!’
