Consider this quote from St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226)
“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.”
A phrase you will commonly hear in Quaker communities is “I will hold you in the light.” It goes beyond just, “I’ll pray for you.” While it is prayer, it is also an expression of comfort and of love. It is to focus on that of God in each person and ask for that inward light to illuminate that person or even situation whether it be in concern or celebration. Some even picture who they’re praying for bathed in a beautiful, gentle light.
Who or what situation might you hold in the light today?
