A Collect for Epiphany and to Seek the Lord

Lord Jesus, forever king of kings yet willingly born a vulnerable child, as the wise men sought you out, traveling far to pay you homage, kindle in us also a desire to seek you, going to great lengths to discover where you are and what you are like, that we may see you and know you and be satisfied by the richness of love and relationship you offer, through you who reign with the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.”‘ – Matthew 2:1-2
