PCPC Daily Prayer Guide
WELCOME TO THE SEASON OF EPIPHANY.
The word epiphany comes from a Greek word meaning “disclosure or unveiling,” and it was used in the ancient world to designate an official visit of a king or emperor to some city of his realm. In the tradition of the church calendar, Epiphany is a celebration of Jesus’ manifestation to the world as Savior and King. John writes in his Gospel that “we have seen His glory,” indicating that the truth of Jesus’ majesty was not hidden, but publicly revealed for the whole world to experience.
The season of Epiphany begins on January 6th, twelve days after Christmas day, and it continues until Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the season of Lent. It is a time to reflect on Jesus’ universal kingship, His beauty and majesty, and His mission to gather the nations of the world unto Himself. You will find these themes reflected in our prayer guide this season.
The simple message of Epiphany is that the King of creation has come and we are to receive Him in all His glory. In His light we see light and are made by grace to be light to others, that the whole world might worship Jesus the King.
