The Second Sunday of Epiphany (B)
Prayer for the week
God in heaven,
we are sorry for the times when we are cynical
and doubt other people.
We thank you for the people in the Bible who trusted and followed Jesus.
Give us the same courage and strength to follow your Son,
and not be shy to tell others about Jesus.
This we ask in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Canon Robert Townsend
Collect for the week
in Christ you make all things new:
transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,
and in the renewal of our lives
make known your heavenly glory;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
