Lord, quiet my spirit on this day of darkness.  may i reflect upon my Savior's passion as i ponder the darkness of my own heart.  may i recognize my sin that put my Savior on that cross, that i may appreciate all the more the joy that sunday brings.  may my fervor be refreshed.  may i understand more deeply the consequences of my sin and the greatness of Christ's sacrifice.  and may my spirit rejoice in my redemption.
