Prayer to the God of Light

‘Just and holy is thy Name, I am all unrighteousness; False and full of sin I am; thou art full of truth and grace.’

Heavenly Father,
We thank you that by your grace towards those of us who are your children, we have come to love holiness.
We delight in it when we see it in your people.

There is to us no lovelier person in all the world than the one whom you have made holy, and with the psalmist we can say,
‘As for the saints who are in the land,
they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight.’

Above all we delight in holiness as we see it in you.
We worship you as the God who is light, in whom there is no darkness at all.
We are full of sin;
We are stained,
But you are altogether beautiful,
You are perfect, and in you there is no flaw whatsoever.

We thank you for your purpose in grace towards your people to make us holy, like you, and we pray that you will send the Holy Spirit into our midst and into our hearts this day to continue that work—to begin it in the lives of those who are still strangers to your grace, and to carry us on, we who are your people, to a greater likeness to yourself.

As you do so, as we meet in your presence,
And as you meet with us,
We pray that you would stir up our hearts to thankfulness and to worship of you, our great and holy God.

Through Jesus Christ we pray these things.
Amen.
