A Prayer for Epiphany

A wooden manger and three wooden crosses

Dear Lord
As we reflect on this Epiphany season, we give thanks for the message of Epiphany. The birth of Jesus has had a global impact. You have revealed the good news to us through the prophets and apostles that the Savior born in a manager was not just the King of the Jews by He was meant for all people.

And now you have given this mystery to the church. As Paul reminds us in Ephesians 3, “I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power. 8To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, 9and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God, who created all things, 10so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

The magi came bearing gifts to the Christ Child, Lord may we offer ourselves to our Lord.
Lead us, Lord, to be the Universal Church called to bring light to those living in darkness and share our gifts with the world. May the gospel message of your grace be proclaimed through us and our ministries. Lord, we marvel at the manifold wisdom of God as you make clear your will for us in Jesus Christ.

Guide and direct us as we seek to love as You have loved first. Teach us to forgive as we have been forgiven. And to live generous lives and like you have first given us in the most precious indescribable gift of Your one and only precious Son, Jesus Christ. All praise, glory, and honor be to the Lamb who sits enthroned on high. In Jesus name, Amen

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!" -John. 14:12-14
