Prayer for Epiphany
God of love and healing,
We journey toward You, like the Magi; we are called to seek You. With perseverance and courage, we bring our whole selves. We are filled with gratitude, but we are also very, very tired. We are weary. Our bodies ache from the journey. Our hearts ache from missed connections and empty chairs at our tables.
Your gaze lands on us, and You call us beautiful. You reassure us. Our mask-covered faces are an embodiment of Your love in this world. You remind us that the pain of isolation and social distancing is a testament to our love of neighbor. You awaken in us the possibility of healing.
We meet You and receive the promise of hope.
