Almighty God, I love how you crafted your Word so that the Old Testament gives visions and images pointing toward Jesus and the new covenant. These words you spoke to Isaiah are so relevant to me today, as I look forward to celebrating Resurrection Sunday and all of its impactful meaning. Your glory truly rose over us when Jesus rose from the grave to sit at your right hand. Our light has come. Darkness flees. May all come to the saving knowledge of Jesus, and shine it among the nations. I pray with eternal hope in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Arise, shine, for your light has come,and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1 ESV)
” I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness.” (John 12:46 ESV)
