DAY 2

MORNING PRAYER 
Loving God, 
As we continue to celebrate the joy we get from the Christ Child, 
during the celebration of the Epiphany, 
make us aware of the true gifts we have to share with loved ones.  
Deepen our sense of joy, 
making us ever-grateful for the gifts others bestow upon us.  
Help us to extend our capacity for compassion, 
so that we may help those in need.  
Thank you for the gift of the Christ Child 
who fills our lives with love and hope. 
Amen
