This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. (1 John 1:5-6 ESV)
И вот благовестие, которое мы слышали от Него и возвещаем вам: Бог есть свет, и нет в Нем никакой тьмы. Если мы говорим, что имеем общение с Ним, а ходим во тьме, то мы лжем и не поступаем по истине; (1-e Иоанна 1:5-6 Russian)
O LORD our God, help us dear Heavenly Father as we struggle through the murky waters of this world of sin and death. Restore our absolute confidence that Christ Jesus is indeed victorious because of his sacrificial death on the cross. Help us to reach lost souls who are starving to know you. Give us wisdom to teach with truth and love while demonstrating our own faith by our works. Forgive my sins while I in turn forgive those who sin against me. Help me not to hold grudges while realizing that this only causes my soul harm. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
