The 40 Days of Lent
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words;
their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
Lord, You are the light of the world. You have promised to bring light into our darkened world, and we claim that promise this day. Let your light shine brightly in all the places of our lives so that me may rejoice in your glory.
