Exodus 2:11-25: But Moses fled from Pharaoh and stayed in the land of Midian 

Matthew 2:13-15"Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt..."


God of revelation, as we gather in praise for the gracious mystery of your Son, we remember the many needs of your church and your world.

Insert here Prayers of the People (p. 383, BCP) or your own words of intercession.

Guide us on the path of salvation, O God, that the radiance and power of your Holy Spirit working in the world will gather together all peoples and nations in one community to offer you worship and proclaim your splendor.  Amen. (source)


Long Way Around the Sea

Make a list of those you know serving the foreigner in our nation or who have chosen to live as a foreigner around the world. Pray for them.  Next, pray that you'd be able to bless the strangers and the displaced you meet in your own city.
