I’m a little late for new year’s resolutions, but I read something in my daily prayer book for the fifth day of Epiphany (today) that makes for an excellent one. It comes in the form of a prayer – that I may have “the wisdom to see God, the intelligence to understand Him, and the diligence to seek His face.” What profound words to pray each day in 2015! They prompt me to both know about God and to actually know Him, to both grow in faith and act in faith.

God of wonders, while our knowledge is encyclopedic, our ignorance is immense. But when we turn our minds to You, the secret things of Your ways and wisdom, we’re reduced to stammering reverence and humble adoration. We worship You, we adore You; to You be the glory forever. Amen. – Philip F. Reinders
