The Light of God Shines in the darkness for all to see

winterlight-JRenPrecious Holy One
A brief look at the news shouts out that there are many dark places in our world.
Darkness through mindless violence
Darkness through frustration and horror
Darkness through grief and distress
Darkness through pain and disease
Darkness deep in the souls of those we love…

Holy One
into these dark places
into those unnamed dark places
into the darkness of fear and lonliness
pour out your radiance
shower down your light
break through pure brilliance
until the darkness is disspelled
and our hearts find peace
and the light of hope
can shine forth again
fresh and new with this new day

hear our prayers we pray,
Amen
