Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 8/27

Photo by Joanne Gallagher, CSJ

With the same light and beauty, intensity and heat,
   with equal power and brilliance,
      your sun rises over all of us, O Lord...

Through clouds and haze, mist and storms,
   in the depths of rain forests,
      your sun's blessing pierces through with life...

Though I might hide from your sun's steady gaze
   I'd have no life at all
      were my world not bathed in its bright grace...

Still brighter, warmer, evermore intense
   shines the light of your face, O Lord,
      rising over all of us each morning...

Lift my face to yours at sunrise:
   let your tender mercy break the day
      and shine through any darkness in my heart...

When I sit in shadows, waiting for the dawn,
   rise up, Lord, and shine on me
      to guide my feet along the path of peace...
