Sunday Prayer 34

You, who are Light,
who appeared in order to shed Your light abroad in our hearts,
who stepped into the darkness yet was not overcome by darkness,
who went under death’s darkness but did not surrender to it,
who burst forth from death’s shadow in blazing resurrection life,
You, Light,
shine light
in us,
who haze our ways through cloud-covered path days,
who feel the darkness both outside and inside yawning wide chasms,
who do what we do not want to do and hide in shadowed alleyways,
who unwittingly (and wittingly) cover others in shadow blankets,
You, Light,
shine light
in us.
Amen.
