Lord of light, shine your light on us now. As you spoke your word of creation in the beginning, speak your creative word to us now. As you gave us your word through prophets and teachers, give us your word in our worship this day. As you yourself read the scroll and claimed its promises, read your word into our hearts and claim us with your promises. As your disciples, we gather around your word, in your name. Amen.
