The Second Sunday of Christmas (B)
Prayer for the week:
God in heaven,
we thank you for the perseverance of the wise men
who travelled from afar
to worship at Jesus’ side and offer gifts.
Help us always to to be generous to others
and give us the gift of perserverance,
so that we can worship you throughout our Christian lives.
We ask this in Jesus’ name.
Canon Robert Townsend
Collect for the week:
in the birth of your Son
you have poured on us the new light of your incarnate Word,
and shown us the fullness of your love:
help us to walk in his light and dwell in his love
that we may know the fullness of his joy;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
