Lord Jesus, you are the light of my life. You are the life in my life. You are Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. There is no forgiveness or hope without you. I rest in your perfect peace. I stand upon your name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:1-5 ESV)
