Daily Prayer:Oh Lord, please help us all shine our lights before all the men and women around us. May we lead others to know You Lord. If there are any evil tendencies left in our lives, bring it to our attention today. To those that smoke, help them understand that getting high is wrong and to stop. To those that drink alcohol, help them know that getting drunk is evil and needs to stop. To those that are involved with pornography, fornication adultery or homosexuality, help them know that these things are an abomination and needs to stop. These things do not edify our souls but only lead us in the ways of sin and death. I know Lord, that nothing good comes from heeding temptation for You are unable to work in our lives. Help us all to put off the natural man, that we may be transformed in the Spirit. Bring us out of darkness and into Your glorious light. Lead us away from being a stumbling block but a person that helps a brother and sister in the faith. Shine Your light upon us now, that we may shine brightly before them. Use us to do Your will, oh Lord. I trust in You. I am blessed to have You in my life. You give me the direction I need to stay strong in the faith and to resist temptation. I love You. Amen.
