Pray that the saints would not fear the Lord’s light but would love the light, come to the light, open to the light, and aspire to be people whose whole being is filled with light, not having any dark part (1 John 1:5, 7; Rev. 21:23; John 3:19-21; Luke 11:34-36).
1 John 1:5, 7—And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all…But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from every sin.
Rev. 21:23—And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon that they should shine in it, for the glory of God illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
John 3:19-21—And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were evil. For everyone who practices evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his works be reproved. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be manifested that they are wrought in God.
Luke 11:34-36—The lamp of the body is your eye. When your eye is single, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is dark. Watch out therefore that the light which is in you is not darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of light and does not have any dark part, the whole will be full of light as when the lamp with its rays illuminates you.
