In the beginning God separated the Light from the darkness (Gen. 1:4), and He continues to desire to turn our darkness into light (2 Samuel 22:29). We once were darkness but now, as we believe in Christ, we are Light and we are to live as children of the Light. The fruit of the Light is found in all that is good and righteous and true, causing us to seek those things that please the Lord (Ephesians 5:8).
God is all Light. In Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the Light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. (I John 1:5-7).
Dear Heavenly Father,
How breathtaking is Your generosity. Your gifts reach beyond our comprehension through time and space. We thank You for the gift of light and life, for the sunlight, moon, and stars, for the gift of Your Son, the Bright Morning Star.
Jesus is the Light of the world. His righteousness fills the skies. May we worship Him as long as the sun shines and the moon gives light for ages to come.
We confess that in ages past, our Celtic, Roman, Viking, and tribal ancestors worshipped sun gods and sky gods. We leave them to Your judgment and mercy, dear Lord.
We ask You to pour out Your power upon Your Church that she might receive Your divine grace and blessing. If there be any residue of evil in the House of Windsor, the Church of England, the Anglican Communion, and the office of the Archbishop of Canterbury from the pagan worship of our ancestors, let it fly as darkness from light.
Bright Morning Star, come forth to Your bride, cast out devils and put sickness to flight. Cleanse Your people in the Church of England and the Anglican Communion from all uncleanness and all evil, so that no pestilence may abide, no hidden wiles of the enemy may remain, and so that they may live in peace and safety.
Arise, Sun of Righteousness, with healing in Your wings. Arise. Amen.
