Prayers on Fire: Daily Devotion
Light in the Darkness
At each and every sunrise I will awake to do what’s right
and put to silence those who love wickedness,
freeing God’s people from their evil grip.
I will do all of this because of my great love for you!
Lord, when you examine my life, I pray you will find integrity, honor, and compassion as the theme. I live in a world of corruption, where anything goes and righteous standards are frowned upon. Let it not be so in my family. For generations to come, may we be an example of wisdom and love for others to follow.
I will choose to keep the pure and godly as my closest friends, but help me to never be prideful or shun anyone. Though I will not be named among the wicked, let my kindness attract them. When they look to me for counsel and support, anoint me to speak from a heart of compassion, with words of godly wisdom. May I shine with the glory of your Spirit within me to a world smoldering in darkness and desperate for your touch.
The deepest cry of my heart is to live a life that reflects you into the world around me. May I walk humbly with you all of my days and see this passionate pursuit of godliness continue for generations.

- Lord, when you examine my life, I pray you will find integrity , honor, and compassion as my theme. These 3 words describe my dad. He’s been gone since March 19,1995. Maybe one day my kids will remember me this way. You set the bar high, dad.
- I pray we all can leave a legacy like that. With the Lord’s help, nothing is impossible, even for a wretch like me!! :)
