Flames of Justice are Kindled

November 10, 2014

Gracious God,

The sun rises above the horizon to warm the earth,
and the sky reflects the heat of our world,
yet you alone warm our souls—
you alone heat the fire of our spirit.

Flames of justice are kindled by your presence—
for wickedness cannot stand before the Creator God,
the one who openly forgives but will not stand for injustice.
Evil flees from the Lord
and darkness dissipates
at the first sight of the Eternal Light of Christ.

May it always be so, now and forevermore.
