Service of Light: A Prayer

God of light,

Shine upon us.

Move us to see the glow of your presence in the darkest places

     –the places where it seems impossible for a candle to hold its flame.

Move us to know the light of your Spirit in the brightest places

     –the places where the neon signs, LED headlights, and fluorescent bulbs are nearly blinding.

Move us to notice your light in the loudest places

     –the places where the constant chaos and cacophony demand all of our attention.

Move us to see you, to hear you, to feel your warmth.

May we know the light, and may we never fear the darkness.

     For it was in the darkness that you spoke to Jacob,

          and it was in the dark of night that you came as a child.
