Hymn        What Child is This   #74VU


Prayer:  We give you thanks, O God, for those who believed Jesus to be your Promised One. We thank you for Mary, who praised your name because you chose her as mother of the Christ. We thank you for sages who were led from the East by signs in the sky to greet the holy birth. We give you thanks for John, who bore witness to Jesus. Most of all, we give thanks that when Jesus was baptized, you showed your affirmation of Jesus as your beloved child and servant. 
      Through the word of many witnesses, we too name Jesus as our Christ and Saviour, our Light and Life. Shine in our hearts through the light of Christ that we may be signs of your presence on earth, making peace and doing justice. May your people be a light to the nations, through Jesus, your faithful servant. Amen. (a prayer from the Book of Worship of the United Church of Christ published in 1986).
