Father, help us to see You. We are spiritually blind without Your Spirit giving us eyes to see (Eph. 1:18), and we need to see You, first and foremost. If we can see You in all of Your glory, all of Your power, all of Your justice and all of Your grace, then we will know that You are at work in us, for us, around us and through us.
