Father help us to see today as an opportunity. Instead of pointing out all that's wrong, help us focus on all that's right. Your children are gathering together at churches and neighborhoods. Give us opportunities during those gatherings to share our stories of how You have changed us.
Today is also the only day that much of our neighborhood knocks on our front door. If we choose to stay home, let us be an example of your love.
As we turn on our porch light, let that symbolize us bringing Your light into the world. For Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will NEVER walk in darkness, but will have the light that leads to life." -John 8:12
-In Jesus name, Amen.
