Prayer to live by the brightness of God’s truth

Ask God to enlighten your mind that you may live in God's truth and not be lured away by the darkness of sin.

Sometimes it isn’t easy to abide by God’s truth, as our mind gets tempted to follow the darkness of the world.

It is at those times when we need the light of God’s grace, to break through the clouds that overshadow us.

Here is a short prayer from the Church’s liturgy that asks for God’s truth to shine in our minds.

Lord God,
since by the adoption of grace
you have made us children of light,
do not let false doctrine darken our minds,
but grant that your light may shine within us
and we may always live in the brightness of truth.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

Amen.
