The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.

John 1:5 NLT

The light,
dances in the sky,
Sings praise
To God most high.

The light,
Shines above,
Warms our hearts,
Radiates love.

The light,
Speaks of
the eternal flame,
The light of the world,
Jesus, is his name.

Loving God, we praise you for the wonder and beauty of your creation.  We thank you for the reminder us of your loving presence with us.  We praise you that, no matter how things seem, the light of your love can never be extinguished.  Loving God, as we sit with you and talk with you, we draw our strength from you….

We bring before you the difficult situations and problems around the world and closer to home….. We praise you that no situation or person is beyond the reaches of your redemptive, healing love.

May the light of the inspiration, guidance and love of Jesus to shine brightly in our lives, that peace, justice and love would be in the hearts and minds of all peoples. Amen.
