Epiphany - the visit of the wise men. A prayer.

Just as the wise men brought gifts, so do we.

We bring the you the gift of concern
for our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world,
especially those countries where they endure hardship and suffering
simply because they are called by your name.

We bring you a gift of thanks
for those who faithfully follow you.
Inspire and encourage all who seek to live by your truth.
Connect us as we seek to work together.

We bring you a gift of sacrifice
Make us hungrier for your word and
thirstier to be obedient to what you teach us.
May we live our lives for your purposes.

Just as the wise men brought riches
we ask that we be more generous.
Make us open-handed with our wealth,
lavish with our praises and
extravagant with our worship
so that we may live lives
wholly devoted to you.
