My Journey to God

Prayer of Supplication: Journeying from Darkness to Light

O God, I want to step into the light. Take my hand, and draw me in.

Show me how to be confident in the ways I can love. Increase my desire to
live out the potential that is hidden within my heart.

You know these parts of me well. Show me how to magnify your beauty.

In the light, I want to be able to stand with joy and gratitude that I am your creation, and you love every part of me.

O God, as I take that step out of darkness into the light, reveal what I need to see in myself. Although I am vulnerable in this place, help me search
for your mercy and love with confidence and trust.

With outstretched hands, I offer myself to you. As my weaknesses are
exposed in this gentle light, transform what is fragile into a blessing
of courage and hope for others.

I surrender my will, asking you, O God, to help me embrace my true self.
Help me to see what you see. Help me to love what you love.

In this Sacred Light, shining around me and through me, bend my heart and will towards you.

Amen.
