A Prayer for Light
O God of Light,
Father of Life,
Giver of Wisdom,
Benefactor of our souls,
who givest to the fainthearted who put their trust in Thee
those things into which the angels desire to look;
O Sovereign Lord,
who hast brought us up from the depths of darkness to light,
who hast given us life from death,
who hast graciously bestowed upon us freedom from slavery,
and who hast scattered the darkness of sin within us,
do Thou now also enlighten the eyes of our understanding,
and sanctify us wholly in soul, body, and spirit.
-from the Liturgy of Saint Mark
