O God, by the leading of a star you manifested your only Son to the peoples of the earth: Lead us, who know you now by faith, to your presence, where we may see your glory face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

    “…then your light will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the noonday.
    The LORD will guide you always;
    he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
    and will strengthen your frame. (Is. 58:10-11, NIV)

    Epiphany: Awaken Us

    Lord our God, we thank you that we can gather together in this hour, to call on you, to bring everything that moves us before you, together to hear the joyful message of the world’s salvation, to glorify you.
    Come to us now! Awaken us! Give us your light! Be our Teacher and Comforter! Speak to each of us, so that we may hear just what we need and what will help us!
    And so, be gracious to all others everywhere who have gathered together as your community! Preserve them and us by your Word! Protect them and us from hypocrisy, error, boredom, and distraction! Give them and us knowledge and hope, a clear witness, and joyful hearts, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
