Heavenly Father, I come to You in the powerful Name of the Lord Jesus Christ to thank You for the light that Jesus brought when He came from Heaven to Earth.  John 8:12 expresses clearly what He is. “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.’

Because of what Your Son did on the cross, all have the opportunity to believe and have salvation. When one makes that decision, Jesus lights up every part of life. Thank you for the light Jesus brings to my mind and how He sets me free from intellectual darkness.  When darkness comes, You give just enough light for the road I am on. It is the light of Christ in my mind that gives me understanding and assurance of Your sovereignty. 

Thank you that through the work of the Holy Spirt, I have the light of Christ dwelling within me, which gives me all the treasures of God’s wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:3In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Put a desire in my heart and mind to always read Your Word, which brightens the light of Jesus within me and exposes all the works of darkness. I ask that the light You have given me not be hidden, but that You give me the courage to shine for Christ for all to see. Matthew 5:16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Since the light of Jesus is the ultimate gift, direct me to never cease to praise and thank You for it, and to share it with everyone I can.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12

Heavenly Father, I want to praise and thank You today for the message in John’s gospel of how Jesus is the Light that does away with darkness which is brought about by sin and how we who believe in Jesus as the Light have been moved from darkness to light and from death to life.

Through the Holy Spirit I have the Light dwelling within me, which gives me all the treasures of God’s wisdom and knowledge. “In Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.Colossians 2:3

Lead my loved ones and I to walk as children of the Light. Give us the strength to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness wherever we are. I ask that You show us anything in  our lives the may be obstructing the Light of Christ from shining brightly in us.

Jesus said, “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.John 12:46

If there are any hindrances to the Light shining, give us the courage to confess them and make any corrections needed.

Thank you for the privilege You give us of having the Light within us, enabling us to walk in it and allowing us to be able to reflect its brightness to those around us.

I ask and pray these things to You, my God, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
