Prayer for Epiphany

Beloved Jesus,
may I have the faith and insight of the Wise Men,
who, when faced with an ancient hope of a foreign people
and the appearance of a remarkable star,
grasped the connection, and went and followed that star.

I stand now at the border of a new year,
which is to me like an unknown country.
I don’t know what I will experience as I traverse it;
I don’t know what obstacles will lie across my path.

Lead me, like the Wise Men, on a quest
of faithfulness and worship,
of hopefulness and giving,
and always unto Yourself. Amen.
