Prayers: Dark days


Darkness falls over the face of the abyss, as it covers the earth night after night. It gives an eerie silence and movement ceases all around us. Night with night contains its own knowledge, its own dark secrets.

Yet following the dark is dawn and light comes. The light will rise. The people of the darkness have seen a great light. The light is the great energy, the movement of the day. The light is a giver of life to all and expands knowledge.

The earth hurtles through space as it turns, and everywhere there is day and everywhere there is night. Everywhere there are people sleeping and waking, animals active and rested, all dying and being born: everywhere one creation and one humanity.
