JANUARY COLLECT

Creator of the heavens, who led the Magi by a star to worship the Christ-child;  guide and sustain us, that we may find our journey’s end in Jesus Christ our Lord Amen

We pray for those longing for the star of hope and peace to shine on them

and for those stepping out on a new way. 

Beckoning God, who call the rich to travel toward poverty,

the wise to embrace your folly,

the powerful to know their own frailty  – 

rise within us, like a star

and make us restless till we journey forth to seek our rest in you.

(Kate Compston)
