The Fourth Sunday of Epiphany (B)
Prayer for the week
God of Majesty and Splendour:
Renew our sense of wonder at the everyday things around us: the signs of coming spring, the companionship of friends, the kindness which makes the world a better place. Renew our sense of purpose, and guide us to strive not for our own vanity and ambition, but to reflect your heavenly glory.
Canon Carol Wardman
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.
