Dearest Lord,

Your gracious love shines from this moment into all of eternity.

Let it shine Your love in all the dark places of pain, hurt, failure and sin to bring us healing, fresh starts and hope in all the ways we need most. Let it illuminate Your will with absolute clarity to enable us to live as You have created us. Let it radiate Your power in our lives to embolden us to share your love, forgiveness, new life and hope with others.

Yes, let Your love shine brightly, Lord. On us. In us. And through us.

Starting today.

Continuing tomorrow.

And lasting forever more.

Amen and amen.
