A Collect for Light in the Darkness of the World

Almighty God, source of all good things, shine light into the darkness of our world, that we would find hope in our trouble, love amidst the hate, and goodness within the corruption and vice of our days so that we would yet hold on until you appear, through Jesus Christ our Lord who is our light and life and who shall bring justice according to the Father through the Holy Spirit. Amen. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness on them light has shined.” – Isa. 9:2
