The Fourth Sunday of Epiphany (B)
Prayer for the week
God in heaven,
we thank you for the gifts of healing and learning, which Jesus showed and which you continue to offer us today.
We pray for those involved in healing and learning during this pandemic.
Give them all strength and perseverance to do the best that they can, and help us to grateful for all they are doing.
This we ask in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Canon Robert Townsend
Collect for the week
who in the beginning
commanded the light to shine out of darkness:
we pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ
may dispel the darkness of ignorance and unbelief,
shine into the hearts of all your people,
and reveal the knowledge of your glory
in the face of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
