Prayer for the Third Sunday after Epiphany

O almighty God,
you raised up your blessed Son in righteousness,
and revealed him in the flesh;
Grant that we may always follow him both in word and deed,
so that, listening to him with our hearts,
we may be partakers of his glory;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
