You are light, God, and there is no darkness in you whatsoever. Sadly, we confess that the same cannot be said of us. We have walked in the darkness, sinning against you in word, thought, and deed. Your word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, but we have stumbled about because we loved our own paths. We have refused instruction—though you show us how to live in your Word and encouraged us to follow it through the godly people around us. Forgive us, and make us utterly committed to you. Give us perseverance in serving you. Enable each of us to pray, “Your testimonies are my heritage forever, for they are the joy of my heart. I incline my heart to perform your statutes forever, to the end.” We pray this through the Savior in whom we have an eternal inheritance that will never perish, spoil, or fade, amen. (Based on Psalm 119:105-112 and 1 John 1 and 1 Peter 1)
