“Almighty God, you have poured upon us the new light of your incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.”
Prayer by Scot McKnight
Today, I’m praying that I don’t just remember how wonderful the light was on Christmas Eve. I want Jesus’ light to shine on my path today, so that I might see things I won’t see otherwise. I want to see more so that I can become more like Jesus. I want to become more so that I can do more with Jesus. I want to do more so that I can feel more of his love — around me, in me, through me.
