Prayer: Eleventh-Century Latin Hymn

Lord of light, shine on us; Lord of peace, dwell in us; Lord of might, protect us; Lord of love, enfold us; Lord of wisdom, enlighten us. Then, Lord, let us go out as your witness, in obedience to your command, to share the good news of your mighty love for us in the gift of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.


  1. Jesus did tell us to spread the good news so it is in obedience that we do so; however, more than that, I am motivated by gratitude to our Lord for all God's gifts and especially for God's love in my life.

    1. Obedience that originates in love for the other makes everything else so natural.
