Prayer for Being Filled With Christ's Light



William Holman Hunt: The Light of the World
Prayer for Being Filled With Christ's Light

Lord, help me follow Your Light today,
Let Your Light be in all I say,
Let Your Light be in all I do,
Lord, let my heart reflect from You,
Your holy love, Your peace, and joy,
Let my life shine for You, Lord!
Oh Jesus, Light of the world, my Friend,
Fill me with Thy Light and send
My heart, my mind, and all my being
Into the world Your light to bring,
Your Truth in all You do through me
From now until eternity.
In Jesus' Name, Amen.

*The Painting, "The Light of The World," (1853-54) by British Pre-Raphaelite Painter William Holman Hunt (1827-1910) is an allegorical painting presenting Jesus Christ as the light of the world knocking on an overgrown door representing a person's heart. The door has no handle and can only be opened from the inside. Hunt wanted to visually portray the idea that Christ will not force Himself on us; we must invite Him into our hearts. A deeply devout man, Hunt believed that God had called him to paint this subject, which was inspired by Revelation 3:20:  “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends."(NLT)

And sometimes I'll see a person in the grocery store or the bank, and the glow from them is something that cannot be mistaken. They are the ones who have welcomed Him into their hearts & homes. I hope that's what they can see when they
