Troubled and perplexed, we come to you, O Lord of light,
Searching for answers, but do we even know the questions to ask?
Puzzled and dismayed, we beseech you, O God of justice,
To guide us in the paths of mercy and righteousness.
Help us to heal divisions and increase understanding
So we move from darkness into the light.
In the name of him who is your light,
Even Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen.
