Father, when we stop and think of the responsibility You have given us to be light, please help us to not take this lightly. Help us to not trample You under our feet. When we say we are Christian, but we do everything the world does, we are ineffective and we are standing in the way of sinners (Psalm 1). Help us Jesus to walk, talk and live differently. We lose our witness when we seek fulfillment the way the world does. Jesus, please draw our neighbors and help us to not be stumbling blocks to them. Give us the courage when needed to speak up and help us to know when to keep silent. You are able to do so much more than what we ask or think. Please help us to really reflect You to them and to trust You for their salvation and deliverance. You are able to do ALL things but fail. You are the Lord of the harvest. Help us to be effective labourers with You so we hear “well done, good and faithful servant.” Help us to live in light of eternity and when we feel weary remind us that if we wait on You, You will renew our strength (Isaiah 40:29-31) in Jesus name.
