SINCERE PRAYER

Oxygen Volume 11

Lord,
I want people around me to know
that I believe You are the light of the world.

I want to love You so much
that people can see in my life
– even if they never listen to my words –
that I believe You are the light of the world.

I know that making my witness visible
in and of itself,
is not enough.
I must have courage in the presence of my friends
to point to You and say clearly,
“Behold, the Lamb of God!
Behold, the light of the world.”

If I continue to walk silently
while others are walking in darkness, it is my own fault,
for You, Jesus, are the light of my life — of all life.
