Prayer of the Month

The Wise Men came to see Jesus and to worship him and we celebrate their coming in January, this little prayer refers to the gifts they brought, Think about those gifts as you pray this prayer.

God of Gold, we seek your glory,
the richness that transforms our darkness into colour,
and brightens our dullness with vibrant light;
your wonder and joy at the heart of all life.

God of incense we offer you our prayer,
our spoken and unspeakable longings, our questioning of truth,
our search for your mysteries, deep within.

God of myrrh we cry out to you in our suffering;
the pain of all our rejection and bereavements,
our baffled despair at undeserved suffering,
our rage at continuing injustice;
and we embrace you God with us,
in our wealth, in our yearning, in our anger and our loss.

Amen.
