Light of the world, shine on me!

Light of the world, shine in my heart, revealing my sin so that I might confess it to You.

Light of the world, shine into the darkness of my soul, renewing that which the world has made dingy.

Light of the world, shine in my mind, that I might see Your truth clearly.

Light of the world, shine through me, so that I might reflect Your radiance into this world.

Light of the world, shine on me!

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
