Prayer of the Day
Lord God, source of every blessing, you showed forth your glory
and led many to faith by the works of your Son, who brought gladness and
salvation to his people. Transform us by the Spirit of his love, that we
may find our life together in him, Jesus Christ, our Savior and
Sunday Scripture Readings:
1 Corinthians 12:1-11
Perfect Light of revelation, as you shone in the life of Jesus, whose
epiphany we celebrate, so shine in us and through us, that we may become
beacons of truth and compassion, enlightening all creation with deeds of
justice and mercy. Amen.
O God of steadfast love, at the wedding in Cana your Son Jesus turned
water into wine, delighting all who were there. Transform our hearts by
your Spirit, that we may use our varied gifts to show forth the light of
your love as one body in Christ. Amen.
