Glow in the Dark

I am at a youth retreat and the theme is "Glow in the Dark." This ancient prayer, especially the first few lines, fits in perfectly. We are talking a lot about transformation. We also had a Color Powder War, because why not?

Anyway, to help in your worship of God:

Look upon us, O Lord,
and let all the darkness of our souls
vanish before the beams of thy brightness.
Fill us with holy love,
and open to us the treasures of thy wisdom.
All our desire is known unto thee,
therefore perfect what thou hast begun,
and what thy Spirit has awakened us to ask in prayer.
We seek thy face,
turn thy face unto us and show us thy glory.
Then shall our longing be satisfied,
and our peace shall be perfect.
                                ~St. Augustine
