PRAYER FOR EPIPHANY:
Gracious God, our hearts rejoice in your presence, as we give you our thanks and praise, for you are the fulfilment of all our searching.
Your beloved son, Jesus, is revealed
to the whole world as Saviour and Redeemer, and as the King who reigns in justice and peace.
By the light of a star, you made him known to the magi from the east, who came to pay him homage. Be our daily star, guiding our lives to healing in times of difficulty. May we always follow your light of truth in all that we do. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Vocation Reflection: The astrologers brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh. What treasures do I have to give to the Lord? Is He calling me to be a priest, brother, or sister?(Matthew 2:1-12)
PRAYER FOR SOUTHERN AFRICA:
send forth your Spirit upon us the people of Southern Africa. May we hear anew the voice of Jesus Christ, inviting us to walk with him across the turbulent waters of our time: “Courage, it is I. Do not be afraid.” By the grace of the Holy Spirit empower us to bring comfort to the restless, hope to those who despair, healing to victims of violence, and reconciliation where there is division. May the Holy Spirit heal our families and communities. Grant us ethical and courageous leaders who put the good of the people before their own interest. We ask for your grace to guide us to speak the truth with courage, to act justly in all we do, to share with those in need and always and everywhere to respect your gift of life as we strive to proclaim the values of the Kingdom, in solidarity with all people of goodwill. We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
