Second Sunday after Epiphany
Help us, gracious Lord,
To offer more of ourselves to you.
To give up those things to which we are clinging.
To let go of the possessions and securities that keep us from following you with abandon.
PRAYER FOR THE WEEK
Dear Lord, by your grace, our salvation is free. We don’t earn it. We don’t have to try. Yet, as we receive that salvation, we recognize that our lives will change, that there will be a cost in our discipleship. It’s not the cost of earning your love, which has already been given to us. But it is the cost of putting aside our old self so that we might be more fully devoted to you. Amen
