This is a slight departure from our current series but one that I believe you will appreciate...
I was invited to PRAY on the last night of the LIGHT IT UP Prayer Call series. This was a week of prayer for children and youth in light of recent events and all that our children and youth have to face and deal with everyday, everywhere. I pray that this prayer blesses you and I ask that you PLEASE share it with EVERY young person you know that needs to be challenged and encouraged to carry the LIGHT of Christ everywhere they go!
LISTEN and BE BLESSED!
God of Fire and Light, First we say THANK YOU for being so good and so kind and for just being the same, yesterday, today, and forevermore.
THANK YOU for calling us together for such a time as this, to pray and intercede on behalf of children and youth everywhere.
I ask you to please forgive us for the many ways that we have dismissed, disregarded, or diminished the light of Christ that is available to shine brightly in and through and on all of us. Forgive us Lord and ignite our fire again.
God of Fire and Light – I pray that on this night, we would open our hearts and minds, our ears and our eyes to the many ways that the darkness of injustice, abuse, violence, hypocrisy and silence pervades and invades the world…. Our city… our streets… our schools…and even our homes.
God of Fire and Light – I pray that on this night we would avail ourselves to be vessels of your light. You are the light of the world and when we say YES, we invite you to light a fire in our souls that calls us to be light bearers everywhere we go.
God of Fire and Light – I pray that on tonight we would recommit ourselves to walk in the light, beautiful light. We recommit ourselves to come where the dew drops of mercy shine bright. Lord, please shine all around us by day and by night. YOU are the light of the world.
And on tonight we acknowledge you as the light of the world.
On tonight we choose to walk OUT of the darkness.
And from this point on WE will light up your world!!!
IN JESUS' NAME...
GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
