Epiphany Prayer 14 (Day 363)
Precious Lord, we gather together together to worship You today. You are the light of the world, Lord Christ: may we be enlightened anew by your Word and Sacraments to live our lives in You.
May we live out your call to radical love to a world misshapen by our own faults. May we serve You by serving each other, and taking each other's burdens as our own in holy love, the key to our salvation.
Lord, we pray for our brothers and sisters whose lives are torn by violence, displacement, or war; and pray for an end to injustice. We gather to our hearts those who are in pain, or who face uncertainty or sadness, that they be comforted. Send your Spirit to rest upon the troubled waters of our lives, and especially on those we now name.
