Prayer

Light and dark

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

“I am the LORD, and I do not change” (Malachi 3:6; NLT).

My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).


Father,
In contemplation,
Whether my soul rises
Into your dazzling light,
Or sinks into the darkness
That surrounds you,
Your presence,
And your love,
Are just the same,
My Lord,
My God.
