A Place at the Table – 47 – Sonrise
God of our Lord Jesus, the Anointed, Father of Glory: I call out to You on behalf of Your people. Give them a mind ready to receive wisdom and revelation so they will truly know You. Open the eyes of their hearts, and let the light of Your truth flood in. Shine Your light on the hope You are calling them to embrace. Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance. Let them see the full extent of Your power that is at work in those of us who believe, and may it be done according to Your might and power.
I absolutely love the line in this prayer about the light of God’s truth flooding in. This morning was an absolutely stunning sunrise as I was waiting for our 8:00am service to begin. The sun started off, of course, as a small glint on the horizon, but of course the dawn became daytime and the light flooded around. I am thankful for the Son who rose this Easter day and whose love and light and forgiveness and hope floods all around. Amen.
