Almighty, ever-living God and Father, you raised up judges to lead your people in the paths of righteousness. Father of light, illumine the world with the glory of Christ; let our knowledge and love of you grow ever deeper and stronger. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
May those who rejoice at my troubles be humiliated and disgraced. May those who triumph over me be covered with shame and dishonor. But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, “Great is the Lord, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!” Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long. (Psalm 35:26-28)
Father, we could be driven to despair in the midst of the evil that surrounds us if we didn’t walk in the light of Your truth. We walk in the true wisdom that comes from heaven, not in the flawed wisdom that comes from the world.
+ Help us to make the most of every opportunity to stand up for your truth in our minds, our speech and in our actions.
+ Help us to be faithful in passing on the faith to the next generation. We want to be the light that shines forth in the creeping darkness of our land so that we can show others the way to eternal life.
And when our appointed time comes, lead us across that river to the place you have prepared for us. In the name of Jesus, your Son and our Savior, we pray. Amen.
Renew my strength, Lord. Fill me with your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in my path. With my eyes on you, Lord, with you walking beside me, working through me, I can make it. Thank you, Lord!
Heavenly Father, give me the heart of Moses, who cared only to see Your glory.
Give me a holy desire to glorify You in my private life, in my public life, and in all my associations. May You be my most prized treasure. I pray You will receive glory from my life. Today, show me Your glory through Your Word and help me to reflect this glory to others. Let me be like Moses who did not know that his face shone — may I live in Your presence and radiate Your presence to others.
Consume me with a desire to see You glorified in my life. Show me Your Glory! I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
