“Make Your face shine upon Your servant, and teach me Your statutes.  My eyes shed streams of water, because they do not keep Your law.”  (Psalm 119L:135-136)

When you look out at those who walk in the darkness does it bring tears to your eyes?  Weep for those who do not know the Lord.  They are as wayward children who do not know that they do not have the light of the Father in them.  Be one who shines the light of Christ in your countenance that you may be a witness of the goodness and mercy of the Lord.  He sends you as His witness.

Lord, I know that I have not been a good witness of the faith.  Teach me to be consistent and willing to serve You in every circumstance.  Guide me according to Your goodness that I may live out the faith I proclaim that I have.  Teach me Your precepts that I may practice them in public and in private.  Help me Lord to be a consistent witness of the promise of Your grace and mercy.

Holy Spirit, minister to my heart that I would be consistent in the faith You have given me.  Take away those places which conflict with Your precepts that I would now and always abide in You as You abide in me.  Lead me this day to practice in those places where I am not consistent or faithful.  In all things, help me to be one who shines the likeness of Christ for all whom I meet.  Amen.
