The Third Week After Epiphany — Common Prayer Daily (2023)

Epiphany Week 3 - January 22nd - 28th, 2023

Opening Scripture:

Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Isaiah 60:3


Let us take a moment to confess our sins

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done, and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Grant to your faithful people, merciful Lord, pardon and peace;
that we may be cleansed from all our sins, and serve you with a quiet mind;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Invitatory & Psalter:

Officiant: Lord, open our lips.
People: And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Officiant and People

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Venite (O Come)

The Lord has shown forth his glory:
Come let us adore him.

Come, let us sing to the Lord; *
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving *
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, *
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth, *
and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it, *
and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. *
Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

The Lord has shown forth his glory:
Come let us adore him.

Song of the Three Young Men, 29-34

Glory to you, Lord God of our fathers; *
you are worthy of praise; glory to you.

Glory to you for the radiance of your holy Name; *
we will praise you and highly exalt you for ever.

Glory to you in the splendor of your temple; *
on the throne of your majesty, glory to you.

Glory to you, seated between the Cherubim; *
we will praise you and highly exalt you for ever.

Glory to you, beholding the depths; *
in the high vault of heaven, glory to you.

Glory to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; *
we will praise you and highly exalt you for ever.

The Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

(Video) Week of 2 Epiphany

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

The Prayers

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy
Lord, have mercy

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

The Suffrages

O Lord, show your mercy upon us;
And grant us your salvation.

O Lord, guide those who govern us
And lead us in the way of justice and truth.

Clothe your ministers with righteousness
And let your people sing with joy.

O Lord, save your people
And bless your inheritance.

Give peace in our time, O Lord
And defend us by your mighty power.

Let not the needy, O Lord, be forgotten
Nor the hope of the poor be taken away.

Create in us clean hearts, O God
And take not your Holy Spirit from us.

Take a moment of silence at this time to reflect and pray for others.

The Collects

Special Collects:

(Video) The Word of God: Week of the Third Sunday after Epiphany

Epiphany Week 3
Give us grace, O Lord, to answer readily the call of our Savior Jesus Christ
and proclaim to all people the Good News of his salvation,
that we and the whole world may perceive the glory of his marvelous works;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Conversion of St. Paul (Wednesday Only)
O God, by the preaching of your apostle Paul
you have caused the light of the Gospel to shine throughout the world:
Grant, we pray, that we, having his wonderful conversion in remembrance,
may show ourselves thankful to you by following his holy teaching;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Daily Collects:

A Collect for Peace
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom:
Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense,
may not fear the power of any adversaries, through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord.

A Collect for Grace
O Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God,
you have brought us safely to the beginning of this day:
Defend us by your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin nor run into any danger;
and that, guided by your Spirit, we may do what is righteous in your sight;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer for Mission
Almighty and everlasting God, who alone works great marvels:
Send down upon our clergy and the congregations committed to their charge the life-giving Spirit of your grace,
shower them with the continual dew of your blessing, and ignite in them a zealous love of your Gospel;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

General Thanksgiving

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks
for all your goodness and loving-kindness to us and to all whom you have made.
We bless you for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts
we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up our selves to your service,
and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory throughout all ages.

A Prayer of St. John Chrysostom

Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time,
with one accord to make our common supplications to you;
and you have promised through your well-beloved Son
that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will grant their requests:
Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us;
granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting.


Let us bless the Lord
Thanks be to God!


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all evermore. Amen.
