PRAYER OF INVOCATION

 

God of light, in whom there is no darkness at all, we are not blinded by your glory though we are dazzled by it even as it is refracted in Jesus Christ your Son.  Fill us with your light so that the darkness still within us will gradually disappear; in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.  Amen.
