God of light,
On the days of shadows and clouds, our souls feel the strain of gray. Will sunlight pierce through the thickness of dread? Will light reach our foreheads, our hands, our spirits?
Whether winter clouds or summer storms, erase clouds from the skies. Remove the clouds hovering above our minds and encapsulating our souls.
May this year be full of light and love.
