Day 36

A Prayer for the Second Sunday After Christmas

from the Advent 2021: The Everlasting Light reading plan


1 Timothy 6:15-16


God will bring this about in his own time. He is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see, to him be honor and eternal power. Amen.

—1 Timothy 6:15–16


Lord, we commit our souls to Your almighty hand. Under the sanctifying, life-giving, and supporting influences of Your Spirit, help us to wait for Your mercy that leads to eternal life. 

Then nothing will sidetrack us—no terror of suffering, allure of pleasure, or false arguments. But guided by the light and truth of Scripture, we will march on to Your holy hill. 

And when we escape the dangers of the dark path we are now on, we will greet the dawn of an everlasting day. 

Then we will see the Daystar rise, never to set again. 

Amen.

—Prayers of the Puritans
