" He came into the very world He created, but the world didn't recognize Him. " - John 1:10 (NLT)
Sin blinds us, God made us and all of creation, yet we struggle to recognize Him. Sin takes away our ability to see God and His glorious light in His created world. Pray for God to take away the blinders of sin away from your eyes, so that you can recognize Him and His handiwork all around you.
Almighty God, our heavenly Father: We have sinned against you, through our own fault, in thought, and word, and deed, and in what we have left undone. For the sake of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, forgive us all our offenses; and grant that we may serve you in newness of life, to the glory of your Name. Amen.
(From "An order for Compline", 1979 Book of Common Prayer, Protestant Episcopal Church in the USA)
What can we do to stay away from our sins? Think of a time that God has guide and helped you to stay away from sin.
