Light in the Darkness


God, you are the source of unfailing light.
In the brightness of your day, we live and move and have our being.
Enlightened by your love, your people are able to walk with faithfulness.
And in the darkness of our world, we often stumble in our journeys.

In Jesus, your light has come into this world,
Touching us with tenderness, suffering for us with love.
He is the light of life in our darkness,
And the darkness has not overcome it.

In the shadow of these anxious days,
May we be renewed in the light of Christ,
And be strengthened with the same trust that sustained him.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

Justin Huyck
