The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5
There’s ablaze of sunshine this morning and it seems that suddenly everyone is happy! As lockdown has eased a little further a feeling of holidays descends, people talk of bbqs & socialising and there’s an energy that was missing in the last cooler, damp week and the earlier stages of lockdown.
God wants to shine his light into our souls banishing the heavy dreary cold places, bringing us energy that only comes from him and releasing us from baggage (sin, unhelpful feelings, thoughts etc) dragging us down.
The great thing is we can pray for each other, asking God to clear out the dark stuff & bring his light into every part of our lives.
Have you asked him to do that?
Prayer (as a couple)
Lord Jesus, thank you for the sunshine, a reminder of your light in our lives. Please shine into every part of us. Amen
Prayer (for others)
Lord Jesus, we pray for ______ and _____. Please release them from the darkness that is overcoming them and bring them into your light. Amen
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. Helen Keller
