An Epiphany Prayer

O God of Light and Life:

We are thankful that you illuminate our dark places
and bring joy to our bright places.

Beauty and grace abound as we are made aware of your presence
in our waking, eating, working, playing, and resting.

Your Spirit encourages us to hope,
entices us to trust,
and emboldens us to love
so that we might keep and create the peace
that you desire will live within us
and between us.

Inspire us to be light and life to all we meet,
both near and far, family and foe, friend and stranger –
for we are all your children,
and siblings of one another. Amen
