Prayer for Others: Epiphany

Here’s a prayer of intercession for the Epiphany season.  It comes from the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland website.

Prayer of Intercession for Epiphany

Child of Bethlehem and King of Kings,
you received the adoration of the Magi who came from Eastern lands.

Pour your blessing on the rulers of the nations
and with your perfect light
guide those who live according to the great faiths of the world. Amen.

Jesus, Word of God and Light of the World,
you revealed your glory at the wedding feast at Cana.

Bless us with your healing presence
and transform our proud and stubborn ways
with the new wine of your grace
and bring us with your saints
to the joyful feast of your eternal kingdom. Amen

Son of God and Son of Mary, you received your baptism from John
and you invited your disciples to receive the Holy Spirit.

Pour your grace upon all the baptized
and grant that we may work together for the justice and peace
which belong to your kingdom. Amen.
