Sunrise Will Break In Upon Us

Through the heartfelt mercies of our God,
    God’s Sunrise will break in upon us,
Shining on those in the darkness,
    those sitting in the shadow of death,
Then showing us the way, one foot at a time,
    down the path of peace.
- Luke 1:68-69, The Message

These verses finish out Zechariah’s prayer that we looked at on Sunday morning. This prayer was prayed just months before Jesus was born - the One who was called ‘the Light of the world’.

Read over these verses out loud a couple of times, keeping your mind and heart open to the people God brings to mind for you who may be struggling in darkness, who may be living in the shadow of death, or who may be in need of some guidance towards the path of peace.

As names come to mind, pray God’s favor over them. It’s fine if your name comes to mind as well!
