Dear Heavenly Father, we love You. Give us eyes to see people of all nations as recipients of Your grace and joy. Help our hearts to know the love of Christ and to honor Him with our unyielding devotion in this and every season.
We find hope and strength in knowing that Your light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. I gather in all the goodness and light, in gratitude. I attend to the shadows and what they say to me, seeking healing, courage, forgiveness.
Teach me to live in the knowledge that you who care for me today, will care for me tomorrow and all the days of my life. Continue to create me, guide me and shape me. This is all I ask, in Your Name, I pray.
