Liturgy for Epiphany

by Christine Sine

For some of you this is probably a little late.  However at the Mustard Seed House we will use this prayer for our morning prayers throughout the season of Epiphany so I thought that others might like to join us. Evening prayers can be found here

Morning Prayer for the Season of Epiphany

Arise shine inheritors of God’s light

Bearers of God’s light to our darkened world,

The light of God has come into our world,

And nations will come to its brightness.

Arise sine, privileged ones who live in the light of Christ,

Bow before God, not in shame but in awe,

 

 

All is visible in Christ’s eternal light,

In us God’s light never goes out.

(Pause to remind yourself of the ways that Christ has been revealed as Son of God in your own life.How has God used your life to bring Christ’s light into the life of others?)

Arise shine, in Christ, God’s light has been revealed to us,

It reaches across time and space,

We have come to see,

We have come to follow,

Arise shine, in Christ God’s light has been revealed to all people,

God’s glory has been unveiled in all the earth,

May we go and tell,

May we go and share God’s light with our needy world.

Read Scriptures of the day from Daily Lectionary

Come and see

The light of God has come into our world

To proclaim God’s justice and love

It has overcome the darkness and brought new life.

Come and follow

Christ our king has redeemed our world

He draws us into a loving family

From every tribe and family and culture

Go and tell

The Spirit has equipped us for service

To love our neighbours as we do ourselves

To bring God’s salvation to the ends of the earth

Come and see, come and follow, go and tell

In God’s Son the nations of the earth will put their hope

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be your name, Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever, amen

God who revealed yourself to wise men following a star,

Guide all who search and journey towards your light today,

God whose light shines like a bright guiding star have mercy on us.

God who unveiled yourself in the gift of a son,

Show yourself to all who seek after justice and righteousness today,

God whose light shines like a bright guiding star have mercy on us.

God who was baptized with those who declared their repentance in the Jordan river,

Manifest yourself to all who come with repentant hearts today,

God whose light shines like a bright guiding star have mercy on us.

God who fed the five thousand with a handful of fish and loaves,

Satisfy our hunger with your word of truth and love,

God whose light shines like a bright guiding star have mercy on us.

God who changed water into wine at a wedding,

Fill all who thirst with the free gift of the water of life,

God whose light shines like a bright guiding star have mercy on us.

(Pause to offer up your own intercessions.)

Lord God Almighty, thank you that Jesus’ epiphany as Son of God reaches across time and space.  As we go into this day may we embrace your call to come and see, come and follow, go and tell others.  May we remember that we are bearers of Christ’s light sent out to touch others so that they may know him as Son of God and experience the wonder hope his message brings

Go into the world knowing you are led by the light of Christ,

May the love of the Creator go before you,

May the life of the Redeemer be within you,

May the joy of the Spirit shine through you,

Amen.
