Epiphany Prayer: God of All Good Gifts

Here’s a prayer of petition or dedication for Epiphany (January 6 or the Sunday closest). It was written by Thomas Turner, and posted on Everyday Liturgy.

 

Prayer of Dedication for Epiphany

(referencing Matthew 2:1-12)

 

God of all good gifts,
who gives freely to us,
have mercy on us and grant us the peace
that only the Prince of Peace can provide.

 

Grant that our lives would be an offering,
and that our work would be a good gift,
just as the gifts that the magi brought,
pleasing to you and fit for the king of all creation.

 

We look to you, our Prophet, Priest and King,
to rule the world with justice,
and to give salvation to all who call upon you.

Amen
