Today we call on Jehovah Ori, the God of Light. He is the light on our paths. We praise You for helping us navigate through rocky parts and bringing us out on level ground. We sing praises to Your name and continue seeking your face even as adversaries come against us.
Your word is like a lamp for my feet
and a light for my way.–Psalm 119:105 (ICB)
In You, we find pure light and, therefore, confidence to face each new challenge and each new day no matter how dark things may seem. The God of Light is there.
Jehovah Ori overcomes our enemies. That is anything that draws us away from His light or tries to come against God’s plan for us. Ever feel an ache in your heart or your strength waning? Go back to Jehovah Ori. He is your stronghold. He comforts you and keeps you strong.
Like a moth to a flame, Jehovah Ori continues drawing you toward His light. Allow yourself to move toward it. Let it wash over you, illuminating your understanding and increasing your desire to know Him.
Jehovah Ori, You are the God of Light. Show us Your grace and goodness by lighting the path we should walk. Help your children navigate the challenging days ahead. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Our God of Light
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me
to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
even then I will be confident.
It is a new day. Live it in the light of the Lord, walking in His confidence.
Take care, my friend,

Join me for this series, where we’ll explore the Names of God in letters to my friends, prayers, and excerpts from touching devotionals. I wrote a collection of prayers and words of encouragement to a dear friend and mentor struggling through an illness. My friend is fully recovered (praise the Lord), but I was so encouraged in the process that I wanted to share that encouragement with you. Click the link to access the Series Table of Contents.

I love this one, Suzette! It goes perfectly with 1 John 1. And Psalm 27 is one of my very favorite Psalms. I often recite it in my head in the middle of the night when my mind starts to wander and worry. I need the light in my dark places.
Hi Lisa! I love Ps 27, too. I like your tip on squashing worry so we can sleep, too.
