Heavenly Father, you are the one true God. You desire everyone to come to a saving knowledge of you. I lift up the people in our neighborhoods, our communities, our cities, states and nations. May we all see the truth in you, Father. May the scales be lifted from our eyes to see you at work in our lives. You call us to come out of the darkness of evil, hatred, violence and sin and into your marvelous light. Let your light shine like the dawn of a new day for all of us, Lord. Let hearts be broken and changed as we seek your face. Let us see visions of you while we pray. Let us dream dreams of you as we sleep. Make yourself known. Forgive our complacency. Grow a fire in our hearts to know you deeper and love you more. I pray in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9 ESV)
