Our Ministry Prayer
Radiating the Light of God’s Love
Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your spirit and light.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through me and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others;
The light dear Jesus will be all from You, none of It will be mine; it will be You, shining on others through me.
Let me praise You in the way You love best, by shining on those around me.
Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears for You.
