December 4 Prayer
Isaiah 29:17-24, Matt.9:27-31
‘..and out of the gloom and darkness
the eyes of the blind shall see.’
‘The blind cry out for mercy and they see
according to their faith, their eyes are opened.’
The light has come!
Where there is darkness and gloom
our eyes are closed in the night
blinded even to the possibility of ever seeing the light.
Where all of our doubts, and fear of the tyrants
in our lives deride our faith.
May we stand in awe of the God we believe in
and see his hand working among us
bringing us out of the gloom
May we lift our eyes to see through the crack in the window
letting the light come in.
May this light break forth into our hearts to hope again
and have understanding to follow Your
instruction to live as children of the light.
Oh light come!
Send your Spirit to lift off this gloom.
Let your Spirit come and fill us with fresh joy
as we prepare Him room.
Open our eyes of faith
and let Your light shine even brighter through us
Come, Lord Jesus, come.
