Prayer 211

The prayer series

Jesus,

When you said,
“You are the light of the world.
… let your light shine before others…”,(1)
I thought you wanted me to shine.
Now I suddenly think
perhaps you want us to be one.

You said,
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”(2)
So you are the one and only light.

Because you are the one and only light,
I am the light only when you and I are one.

Wow, your words are deep.

I love you, Jesus.

Amen.

PTH

(1) Matthew 5:14-16: 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

(2) John 8:12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
