Let us pray (in silence) [that the new light, poured upon us, shines in our lives]
Almighty God, [or God of Splendour]
by your incarnate Word
you bathe us in new radiance,
may the same light that enlightens our hearts by faith
brightly shine in all we do,
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour,
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
