Epiphany Prayer

Here’s a prayer of commitment inspired by the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus (Matthew 2:1-12). It comes from the Monthly Prayers page of the Christian Aid website.

 

Prayer for Epiphany

 

“On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother;
and they knelt down and paid him homage.
Then, opening their treasure chests,
they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11

Emmanuel -  
Give us the perseverance and courage 
to seek out and approach you 
wherever you are to be found;

Grant us the vision and understanding 
to see and recognize you  
whenever we might meet you;

Gift us the grace and generosity 
to respond freely and fully  
whatever you might ask of us.
