Father of lights, give Your light and Your distinctive flavor to Your children. Smile on us and let Your heart swell with pride because You love us.
Everyone — in Your Kingdom and out — will see what You’re like, what makes You so wonderful, why it’s so easy to praise You. God, let all people thank and enjoy You, our hearts thankful and happy like when we finally see and feel the sun after a loooong winter.
You care for everyone. Near and far, there’s no one You don’t care about. Let everyone thank You for Your kindness and mercy. Let everyone enjoy Your goodness.
Don’t hide your exuberance, children of God, earth and all its creatures. We have been blessed by God, our loving God. Let’s honor Him, thanking Him and enjoying His presence.
