Holy God, You dwell in unapproachable light. Your light pierces into the darkest recesses of our hearts. You see all.
Father, we confess that our hearts are still full of darkness. Often the very thoughts and desires of our hearts, are offensive to You.
Have mercy on us. Forgive us. We want to walk in the light, as You are in the light.
As Jesus is the Light of the world, we too desire to be light in this world. So shine Your face upon us, Father!
We praise You that the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it. His triumph has brought us out of darkness and into Your glorious light.
We commit ourselves to You. Great is the darkness in us! But Your glorious Spirit is greater still. We pray all this in Jesus’ name, amen.
