Third Sunday After Epiphany
I find it interesting, in reading through these prayers in the Book of Common Prayer, that they deal with so may different issues and occasions. For sure, there are the regular church holidays and church functions such as baptism and marriage, but they go far beyond such matters. The one for today is a prayer for world evangelization. It’s not just “Lord please evangelize the world somehow,” but a prayer to God to send us, if He so desires, to be used in this great task to which Christ commissioned us.
This would be a good prayer to pray on a daily basis:Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation, that we and all the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
