Heavenly Father, I praise and thank You that You have placed Your Holy Spirit of light into our hearts to lead, direct, govern, and train us. Help me to walk in the light of Your love and truth, and may the beauty of Christ shine through me to others so that they too may come to a saving knowledge of our Saviour, Who is the true and only light, and in Whom is life eternal. This I ask in His name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for John 1:9
Father, thank You for all those that are involved in helping others with their addiction to alcohol. We thank You for places like Alcoholic Anonymous and the many Christian ministries and rehab centres that are dedicated to helping men and women recover from this debilitating and distressing addiction, and showing them the love of the Lord Jesus.
Give wisdom, grace and patience to all that are serving in one capacity or another to relieve the distress and devastation that alcoholism leaves in it wake. We pray that You would give them the right words of encouragement and advice to enable those that are addicted to permanently break free of their alcoholism and so live a more meaningful and fruitful life.
We pray that You would not only rescue alcoholic men and women from the depths of despair to which many have fallen, but also that You would raise them up into a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and bring them into newness of life in Him, to His praise and glory. This we ask in Jesus' name,
