Day 8

A Prayer for the Second Sunday of Advent



2 Peter 1:19

BY She Reads Truth

We also have the prophetic word strongly confirmed, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. —2 Peter 1:19


Precious Jesus, You are the Source, the Fountain, the Author, the Finisher of all.

Oh the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are Your judgments, and Your ways past finding out. 

What was the day, the ever-blessed, ever-to-be-remembered day, when You—who commanded the light to shine out of darkness—shone in upon my heart? 

And when did Jesus, the day-dawn and the day-star, arise to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, in the face of Jesus Christ?

Glorious light and life of my soul! Continue Your sweet influence, morning by morning, at dawn, and during the evening star of Your grace. Continue until, after many wintry days of my blindness, ignorance, and senseless state, You renew me in the precious discoveries of Your love. 

By this I am carried through all the twilight of this poor and dying state of things below. For then I will awake to the full enjoyment of Your glory. I will see You in one full, open day; and I will be made like You in Your kingdom of light, and life, and happiness, forever and ever. Amen.

    Reading above 2 Peter 2:19 in 2 Peter 2:5&6- “…Faith with virtue, virtue with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with steadfastness, steadfastness with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    This really stood out to me today- thank you for providing the option to Read the Bible within the devos and not just the verse(s) used in the Bible!
