Light in the darkness

Finally we can feel the warmth of the sun and watch with joy as the flowers and trees blooms with greens, pinks, yellows, purples and so many colors. The coming of the colors of spring are reminders of the hope of the resurrection. From death comes life, from darkness comes light. Not all can see the colors or the light. They are lost in the darkness. Let us lift up those who need to feel the warmth and see through the darkness the  light of hope.

Prayer for hope

We shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.

Gracious God, you are the source of our life and hope. There are people today who need the light of hope. There are people today who feel that darkness has overcome every aspect of their lives. Some we know. Some we don’t know. Many hide their darkness well. Guide us to day in ways we can be light and hope in all that we do so others may see and know the light of the resurrection. Help us to be bearers of hope. Guide us in ways that can announce that hope or ways we can live it out. And when we are the ones without hope guide us to the places and people where your hope and light can be found.
