Lord Jesus, I praise you as the one who is the Word of God, the one who existed in the beginning with God. You were and are God, and you were with God the Father in the beginning. I glorify you as the one through whom all things were made. Without you, nothing was made that has been made. Life is in you, and the life that is in you is the light of all men. Your light shines in the darkness, and the darkness cannot overcome it. You are the true light that gives light to every man who comes into the world. I thank you that you loved us enough to become flesh and make your dwelling among us. The glory you displayed in the days of your flesh is the glory of the Only Begotten who came from the Father. Your glory is full of grace and truth. I pray that ______________________ and I will receive you and believe in your name. I pray that everyone in my city and nation will recognize that you and you alone have given us the right and the authority to become children of God, born not of blood or human will but born of God. Through you we all have received one blessing after another from the fullness of your grace. Truly grace and truth have come to us through you. I pray that everyone in our land will come to recognize that you and you alone have seen the Father, that you are God's Only Begotten Son, and that you have made him known to us. May we be, like John, witnesses to your light. Please open doors for us that we may testify to others that you are the true light. I pray that through our life and witness others will come to recognize you and receive you. This I ask in your name, the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
