On yesterday, we entered into the fourth week of Advent which has a theme of Love and Light. Let’s pray…
O Blessed and Heavenly Father, the Great God I Am, we bow before You so very thankful that You loved us so much that you gave us the greatest gift ever given in your Son, Jesus. Isaiah prophesied that unto us a child was born, unto us a Son is given. We are blessed and thankful for the Son who saves all you will believe and receive Your so love and amazing grace. You are our Light and our Salvation and in You there is no darkness at all for You are completely pure, holy, and righteous.
Forgive us for desiring our own glory instead of Yours which led us to turn our hearts from You and choose sin and darkness. We thank You for providing our way out of that darkness. You promised in the days of the Old Testament that a great light was coming and Jesus is that Light. We bless you for Your faithfulness to Your Word. O Lord, there is no adequate way to thank You for Jesus entering this world born of a virgin, dying on the cross, overcoming death and the grave so that we might have and walk as children of light. Thank You that His love is so great that in spite of our being His enemies, He willingly laid down His life to pay our sin debt, in full. If we had ten thousand tongues we would not be able to thank You enough for loving us at our darkest and causing us to become new creatures in Christ. Blessed is Your Holy Name!
Jesus is the Light of the World and we are blessed and thankful that He calls everyone who believes and receives Him as Lord and Savior out of the darkness into His marvelous light. His light reveals You to us for He is the radiance of Your glory and He expresses Your very character, nature, and attributes to us. Thank you for the Light of Jesus revealing to us Your plans, purposes, and ways as Your Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path leading and guiding our lives for Your glory. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who lives in us and brings us Your wisdom and counsel.
Thank You that You are the Creator God and that no matter how dark this world may seem, darkness cannot overcome the Light of Your glory. Father, we Look forward to to Jesus’ Second Coming and the day when we shall see Him face to face and bow at His feet as we sing Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty!
Father, just as You so loved us, help us to love others. May the fruit of Your Spirit living in us light up this world with Your love and grace! Empower us to be Your love letter written to the world in this generation.
“Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”
In Jesus’ Great and Awesome Name,
