God, your light is the commencement and culmination of creation. From now until forever you are the light of life. You invite us to walk in your light and become lights to the world as we do so. Revive our hearts to sing, “This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine!” Amen.

With those affected by natural disasters
With those who are in their own dark night of the soul
With those who see no hope or light
With those around the world weary and searching for hope throughout years of war and disease
With those who don’t see God’s promise of resurrection
With those trapped in old beliefs, which don’t allow them the joy of your light and love for all people
May the God of Light illuminate us, and with God's gift of light shining in us, may we then move into the world to give light to others, Amen.
