I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe; I the Lord do all these things. Isaiah 45:6–7
God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)
Jesus, Savior, pilot us over the rough waters of each day’s living. Help us to find and hold a steady course, looking for the guiding lights of community, sacrament, and word. Hear our prayer in the name of the Christ. Amen.
