Prayer 1828: Fourth Sunday after Epiphany (for annual meetings)
we come before your altar to rejoice and learn your ways:
look with favor upon us,
and guide us deeper into your wisdom and truth.
May we see your wisdom and wonders
at play in the world around us, Blessed Savior,
knit into the fabric of creation,
our awe and thankfulness sustaining every breath.
May we bend the knee of our hearts before you, O Creator,
and proclaim your love and mercy throughout the world,
united in goodwill and charity,
offering you our all.
Lead us by the power of the Holy Spirit
to be unified in faith, open-heartedness, and good will.
We place ourselves at your command, Lord Jesus,
to do the work of your kingdom with joy.
Gathered together in faith, O Merciful One,
we ask your blessing upon all who seek You:
shine the light of your countenance, we pray,
upon these whom we lift before You.
