Prayer for 1 John 2:8

“Yet I am writing you a new command, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining.”

Heavenly Father, thank You for the beautiful commandment of Christ, to love as He loves, which is ever old, yet ever new. Thank You that the thick, gloomy darkness, that has shrouded the heart of man for so long, was overcome by Jesus Christ, the Light of the world. Thank You that the darkness of sin, Satan, death and hell is passing away and that the true Light of Life is already shining in our hearts, and in the lives of all who are saved by grace through faith in Him. May I be a true witness to Your goodness and grace, and may I learn to love as Christ loved, and to mirror His supernatural love in my life, for His praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name AMEN.
