Prayer for Others: Into These Dark Places

Here’s a prayer of intercession from Julie Rennick, a Church of Scotland minister serving in the village of Earlston. The prayer comes from RevGalBlogPals.

Prayer for Others

Precious Holy One
A brief look at the news shouts out that there are many dark places in our world.
Darkness through mindless violence
Darkness through frustration and horror
Darkness through grief and distress
Darkness through pain and disease
Darkness deep in the souls of those we love…

Holy One
into these dark places
into those unnamed dark places
into the darkness of fear and loneliness
pour out your radiance
shower down your light
break through pure brilliance
until the darkness is disspelled
and our hearts find peace
and the light of hope
can shine forth again
fresh and new with this new day
hear our prayers we pray,
