Opening Prayer

Light of the World, I love You walking gently yet boldly with the 7 stars and 7 lamps. You are searching for authenticity and discerning falsehood. Be merciful as You look at the duplicity and blindness of my heart. I’m such a strange mixture of light and darkness – more like confusing shadows. I’ve heard Your message, Jesus, and yet I still wander in groping disbelief. Like the blind man of Jericho, I want to see. Be my light. Heal the blindness which limits and cripples me in the way I look at others and look for You! Your 7 lights speak of wholeness and completion. Light the depths of my darkness and make me whole. I want to touch the star in Your hand, but I’m afraid it will burn me!
