The Lord is the light that enlightens every man

Bible with candle light

Lamp to my feet is your word, Lord: This verse in Psalm 119 helps us to find the dimension of the human existence, where the light of God's word is necessary. People on pilgrimage, often wandering around, continues to the target, which is to achieve divine life, guided by the light of the Scripture and the light in the lives of the saints.
It is obvious that he calls himself the light. The great David understood this, when he called the Lord for a lamp, where he says:
Your law is a lamp to my feet and a light unto my paths.
When we live in the light, it is easier to be together and we experience fellowship with others. We are safe when we are together.
Lord, we pray that You can shine upon our lives.
Amen.

Når jeg ikke ser den.

Når jeg går sakte, sakte ...

Når vi er i en vanskelig tid.

Når jeg går forbi noe som hindrer.

Når jeg lærer av andre.

Når alt går bra.

Når jeg velger den rette veien.

Når Gud hjelper oss å finne, 
den rette veien i våre liv.


Herre, kan du være med oss ...

Herre, vi vil være som blomster som åpner seg og sprer vellukt.
Slik vil vi selv åpne våre hjerter til Ditt lys. Lyset gir nåde.

 

I forbindelse med festen for Hellige Birgitta 23. juli.

Vi ber med Birgittas ord:

 

Vis meg veien.

Kom snart og lys opp i min natt!

Som en døende lengter,

Slik lengter jeg etter deg.

Si til min sjel,

at intet du tillater, er uten håp.

Å, Jesus, Guds sønn.

Taus sto du foran dine dommere.

Gi meg å tie inntil jeg har besinnet meg,

på hva jeg skal si og hvordan jeg skal tale.

Vis meg veien, og gjør meg villig til å gå videre.

Så oppfyll da min lengsel og vis meg veien.

Jeg kommer til Deg som den sårete kommer til legen.

Herre, gi mitt hjerte ro.
