Light of God, awaken us this hour to the glory of your presence in our midst. Shine among us in such a way that the darkness without and within may be pushed back, such that we might truly see what is really real. Help us to recognize our brokenness for what it is. Enable us to behold the world as you created it to be, as you created us to be. Empower us to move from darkness to light, from brokenness to new life. May your light within us shine through into worship this day, as all days. This we pray in the name of the light which is the light of all people. Amen.
