May you have a very blessed Sunday and have time to meditate on the watchword for this first Sunday after Epiphany: For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. (Rom 8:14 NIV)
Collect for the 2nd Sunday after Epiphany: Almighty and everlasting God, who governs all things in heaven and on earth, mercifully hear the prayers of Your people and grant us Your peace through all our days; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
If you are called to preach, may the triune God give you joy and strength, enthusiasm and wisdom, knowledge and insight – and the true words and pictures to preach his holy will faithfully according to his most precious revelation of his will and promises in both the Old and New Testament! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen as if God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
