Maya’s Daily Message (January 5, 2022)


The Season of Epiphany is upon us,

a time of new beginnings and new awareness.


As I prepare for my sabbatical, and ask God to light our way individually and as a community of faith, prayer is a priority.


Share your Light in Prayer

O God, light our way so we can join

your world-changing mission.

Cast before us a beacon of hope.

Illumine the pathways to peace.

Dispel despair by the dawn of joy.

Draw us ’round the fire of your love.’

Set a star in the silent night

like you did that first Christmas

when seekers gathered in wide-eyed wonder

before the nativity of compassion.

Before they had any inkling

how a single, precious child

would change their world

and generations later

change it still.



Rev. Maya Landell

(Prayer from the United Church of Canada).
