The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

1 John 1:5 NIVUK

The breath of God hovered,
Waiting til the time was right,
To breathe life, to create,
To transform with love and light.

The power of God waited,
Until 3 days had passed,
To resurrect, heal and restore,
The relationship that was lost.

The grace of God shines,
Through Jesus, God’s own son,
Love and mercy have conquered,
Grace and peace have overcome.

The love of God transforms,
hearts and minds and souls,
By the power of the Spirit,
Living and active in our lives.

Holy Spirit, transforming love, come fill us afresh with the love that cannot be overcome; the love of God in Jesus Christ.

Gracious God, we pray for┬áthe light of your love for those people, places and situations You have placed on our hearts. In Jesus’ name. Amen
