A prayer that we might find light in darkness

Creator God, dweller in darkness, yet as light to you; from darkness you created earth, day and night, light and dark. Jesus, light of the world, in darkness treasures are illuminated by your light, seen brightest in darkness. Holy Spirit, revealer of treasures; give us strength to persevere searching for the light in the darkest times of life’s journey. Holy Trinity, challenge me to befriend the darkness with your comforting presence; in time you will reveal hidden treasures that can be found amid suffering, pain and grief; then I will see things differently. Help me dig deep, mining for these treasures produced by immense pressure. Then may these treasures be stored in my heart and in heaven. Amen.
