O father of lights we come to you this morning fleeing from the darkness that has overtaken the world. We run from the darkness because it is our hearts desire to have fellowship with you and with your son Jesus Christ. In you is light, and in this light the blood of Jesus cleanses us of all sin. We acknowledge that if we say we have no sin, we lie and are deceiving ourselves and calling you a liar. But we also know that if we confess our sins, you are faithful to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
You are the faithful and true God. You alone love your people enough to send your only son to die in our place. You alone are holy and pure and have vindicated your son, our redeemer, by raising him from the dead. Not only have you raised him from the dead, you have seated him at your right hand where he now sits interceding for us your people. In the light of this we worship you now through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You with the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end, amen.
