Weakly Prayer

God of glory,

Show us the mercy of light when all we see is shadow

Though we sometimes compare our valley of shadow to another and become ashamed

Though we sometimes create our own shadows by shutting our eyes

Though we sometimes prefer darkness

Show us the mercy of light

Your light is revelation, which probably why we hide, so we ask you to

Illuminate

Reveal

Speak

In the name of Jesus, who overcame the darkness of death.

One response to “Weakly Prayer

  1. “Though we sometimes prefer darkness.” Indeed.
    Though we ( I mean I) frequently, habitually, rebelliously, premeditatedly prefer darkness.

    The amazing thing about the Light of Christ is, as your wonderful prayer notes, that it not only Reveals, but is full of Mercy as well. Astounding.
