As the light grows into day, O God, I pray for spiritual understanding.
In a rhythm as mysterious as the dawn of time, I witness the power of darkness acquiesce to the light of day. It bestows courage that we might have faith in You and in Your tender mercies. Invade our lives as light, O God, and drive the darkness of fear and doubt back into the night. Our days are numbered, but they are not lost in Your eternal plan, for each day brings the opportunity to bask in Your glory through work and play and worship. Though darkness resides in the rhythm of every human life, the light of Your day is promised. Let me rise, then, and pray, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Soli Deo Gloria,
Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
