Prayer for the Weekend

Our Father in heaven, you guided the wise men to the worship of your Son by the light of a star.  Give us light, give us life, and draw us ever closer to you by the light of faith.  Enlighten and enliven our hearts to search after you just as they did.  Give us the grace to overcome the obstacles that keep us far from you.

Lord Jesus, may your light shine on our way, as it once guided the steps of the magi; that we too may be led into your presence and worship you, Son of Mary and Joseph, Word of the Father, King of the nations, Savior of humanity, to whom be glory forever.

Holy Spirit, who by a star led the three kings to the worship of Jesus; lead us to worship the Son of God, to whom every knee will bow, both the wise and the foolish, the great and the lowly of every land, from whom and to whom are all things.

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
