Lead us by your unfailing love, O God. Lead us by your steadfast, eternal covenant of love. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, who showed his great love for us in dying for our sins on the Cross to rise again in victory over sin and death, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 3:6 ESV)
