Merciful One, we turn our faces from darkness to light as night falls away, and remember your gift to us with thankful hearts.
Forgive us our sins, those we have committed or those done on our behalf, we humbly pray.
Give us hearts that seek the Prince of Peace, that we may welcome the Holy One into our hearts with joy.
Strengthen our determination to walk in light, to mindfully follow in the Way of Jesus.
Let us gentle and master our wills to seek only your holy Wisdom, O God, and to act in love within your creation.
Draw all those who worry, watch, or weep into the cloud of your blessing, O Redeemer, as we pray for those in any need.
