Powerful Daily Prayers – Open Statement of Truth
2 Corinthians 4:1-6
Dear Father, powerful sustainer,
You have called me to minister your mercy to the world, so let me never lose heart or give up! May I renounce disgraceful, underhanded ways in all forms and refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with your word.
Let me state truth plainly and thereby commend myself to every one’s conscience in your sight. Even if the message of Good News is veiled to some, it is veiled only to those who are perishing! Open the eyes of those whom the god of this world has blinded. May they see the light of the Good News, the glory of Christ, your very likeness.
May I not put forth myself, but Jesus Christ, for I am your servant, your slave, for Jesus’ sake! For you have said, “Let light shine out of darkness.” I invite you to shine out of my heart so that others will see the light of your glory, the face of Jesus Christ, in my life.
In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
