Prayer in Time of Darkness – St. Augustine


Prayer in time of darkness

God of life, there are days when the burdens we carry chafe our shoulders and wear us down;
when the road seems dreary and endless, the skies gray and threatening;
when our lives have no music in them and our hearts are lonely, and our souls have lost their courage.
Flood the path with light, we beseech you; turn our eyes to where the skies are full of promise.

(From Prayers of the Saints: An Inspired Collection of Holy Wisdom, ed. Woodeene Koenig-Bricker – San Francisco: Harper Collins, 1996)
