our lives make known your glory, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and

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.

from the bonds of disease, free us from the power of evil, and turn us
from falsehood and illusion, that we may find the blessing of new life in
you through the power of Christ. Amen.
