Prayer of Dedication: Light in the Darkness

Here’s a prayer of dedication and commitment from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

Prayer
(inspired by passages such as Matthew 5:14-16,
Acts 13:47, Ephesians 5:8, Philippians 2:15-16,
1 John 1:5-7, Proverbs 4:18)

You call us to be
your light
in the darkness,
your voice
in the wilderness,
your hope
for the hopeless.

You give us
strength
in our weakness,
peace
and gentleness,
words
and boldness,
to proclaim
more of you
and of us, less.
