Prayer: Radiant Creator
ONE:
Radiant Creator,
Strong, Wise, One,
Shine in our minds,
Enlighten our understanding of you and your ways
So we may do what is true and live in your light

ALL:
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
Let your face shine, that we may be saved. (Psalm 80:19)

ONE:
Breath of Life,
Refiner’s Fire,
Shine in our eyes,
Illumine what is in need of correction and cleansing,
Spark in us your compassion and reign

ALL:
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.

ONE:
Jesus, Messiah,
Light of the World,
Shine in our faces,
Make them like Yours
Lighthouses reflecting your love;
Consistent beacons of hope to guide the world to you

ALL:
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
Let your face shine, that we may be saved.
