“God be gracious to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us.  That Your way may be known on the earth, Your salvation among all nations.”  (Psalm 67:1-2)

When you were baptized, the words of Jesus were spoken over you, “Let your light shine.”  You were created in the image of God.  What is the light that shines?  The Light that God desires to shine is the light of His countenance in you.  It’s you and He together as one: each your own person, but one in spirit.  We have been invited into Trinity, three and One.  Let others know by reflecting  your light into the world.

Lord, what you have said I know in my head but my spirit continues in the well-worn path of simply doing what it has always done.  I struggle to let Your light shine through me.  Remove the resistance in me that I may forever hold fast to the truth of Your Word in my heart and shine forth with Your presence in a world of darkness.  Let Your salvation show in me.

Jesus, You have come to set the captive free.  Guide me in the way of truth that I may be led by You and the way You have forever established.  In Your salvation and by Your grace, lead me to Your living truth through all I say and do.  Help me to be guided by Your Spirit to walk in the ways of light and shine forth the truth that You are in me and I in You.  Amen.
