A Lenten Collect to Love the Light

God of light and goodness, whose very nature is love and defines for us what goodness is, keep us from loving darkness and hiddenness, that we would not seek to hide from the truth but would desire to do those things that need no hiding and are worthy of being shown to the world, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit in perpetual love and light. Amen. ‘And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.’ – John 3:19
