In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was without form and covered with darkness. Then God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light.
Lord, we thank you for bringing light to the dark times in our lives. We ask that you look over the people we know who are in need of your comforting presence at the moment.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
