Epiphany Moravian Prayer

The prayers of the Moravian Daily Texts are simple, beautiful, and full of strength. This one is especially for today, Epiphany, 2009:

Glorious God, with all of creation, we are grateful that you woke us up today,
for your mercies are new every morning. Your itinerary is sure to lead us
homeward. Your glory bright far excels the sun's clear light. Amen.


From the MDT: "The members of our Ancient Unity sang these words when bitter persecution compelled them to seek refuge and liberty of conscience in foreign countries."

Blessing and peace to those who are near and those who are far off.
