Prayer that the radiance of God may illumine the shadows of life

Ask God to pierce through the darkness we are experiencing and show us his divine light.

Often the world can look dark and dreary, full of shadows and darkness. Yet as Christians, we know that God’s light can break through that darkness and show us the way to eternal light.

Here is a collect prayer from the liturgy of the Church that we can pray to ask God to illuminate the darkness in our lives.

Lord, may the radiance of your glory light up our hearts
and bring us through the shadows of this world
until we reach our homeland of everlasting light.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
(one) God, for ever and ever.
