A Collect for Christ’s Light to Shine

Light of the world, sent into our darkness and separation from you, shine in our hearts and in the world, and let not our doubts, fears, and brokenness cause us to turn away, that your light would illuminate the path toward goodness and peace, and all might turn to your way both in their hearts and in the world, through you who reigns in eternal light with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.’ – John 1:5
