Cycle of Prayer - 20/04/2014
O Lord God, our Father. You are the light that can never be put out; and now you give us light that shall drive away all darkness. You are love without coldness, and you have given us such warmth in our hearts that we can love all when we meet. You are the life that defies death, and you have opened for us the way that leads to eternal life. ... ... Let the light of our risen Lord reach every corner of our dull hearts. Karl Barth, part of a prayer concluding a sermon delivered in Basel Prison
