Lenten Prayer #26: For God's Light to Shine on Nations
The LORD says “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant
to restore the tribes of Jacob
and bring back those of Israel I have kept.
I will also make you a light for the Gentiles,
that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.”
He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
Open our eyes to see the broad expanse of your family. You are the Creator of all peoples, always loving as if each one of us were a precious child of your household. Bring your light to everyone! Illuminate every ethnic group, every racial sector, every language cluster. May no one be beyond Your reach! Light of the World, let us be your light-bearer in places far and near. Amen
