Light and Life

Holy God, you have shown me light and life,

You are stronger than any natural power.

Accept the words from my heart

That struggle to reach you.

Accept the silent thoughts and feelings

That are offered to you.

Clear my mind of the clutter of useless facts.

Bend down to me, and lift me in your arms.

Make me holy as you are holy.

Give me a voice to sing of your love to others. 

Ancient Christian prayer, written on papyrus

Quoted from the book, “Simple Prayers & Blessings,” Margaret Anne Huffman & Gary Wilde, 1999, p. 292
