This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:5-7)
Help us to walk in the light. You are light, and we have fellowship with you through the blood of Jesus, your Son, who purifies us from all sin.
Forgive us for walking in the darkness, and loving the darkness rather than the light. We have been deceived by the darkness, but your light reveals the truth. Thank you for transferring us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of your beloved Son.
Your Word is a light unto our feet and a lamp unto our path (Psalm 119:105). Help us to live out the truth by walking in the light of your Word, so that we don’t stumble, and for you to make our path straight. It’s only your path that leads to life; all other paths lead to death and destruction.
We are blessed when we have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence (Psalm 89:15). As your children we walk in the light, we have fellowship with you and with each other, and the blood of Jesus purifies us from all sin. Thank you, Father, for your great love.
