Epiphany Collect

Lord God, heavenly Father, You have given us the light of Your holy Word, the guiding star that leads us to the Christchild:  Send, we beseech You, Your Holy Spirit into our hearts, that we may receive this light and make use of it for our salvation, and that we, like the wise men, when they were seeking the star, may not be afraid because of any hardship or peril, but put all our trust in Your only-begotten Son as our only Savior, devote our earthly possessions to the advancement of Your kingdom, and in all things serve Him, Your only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one true God, SAECULA  SAECULORUM.  Amen.  [from Evangelical Lutheran Hymnary]
