A Collect for Light in the World

Light of the world, who exposes the darkness and those deeds done in shadows, illumine our hearts and our world, that deceit and wrongs would be uncovered and brought to sight and your truth, grace, and mercy would permeate all the nations, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is coming soon in the name of the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.’ – John 1:7-8
