Opening Prayer: Epiphany 3 B

Here’s an opening prayer inspired by the suggested scripture readings for the third Sunday of Epiphany. It comes from the Ministry Matters website.

Opening Prayer
(inspired by Jonah 3 and 1 Corinthians 7)

Holy One, God of all Creation,
you call us to be your people,
to carry your vision in this time and place,
to go where you send us
to help welcome your amazing good news.
As we gather in the presence of the risen Christ
to spread the news that your realm is near,
fill us with your Holy Spirit,
O God of all Creation.
Fill us with your glorious Spirit,
that we may share your good news
with a world in need. Amen.
