Prayer for chalking the doors at Epiphany



At Epiphany at All Saints we bless Chalk and send it out with members of the congregation to mark their homes. We too would welcome the Magi as they return from their visit to the infant Christ and desire God's blessing on our households!

20 + C + M + B + 19


You can use this prayer.


Write 20+

Father, may we who use this chalk in faith to mark the doors of our homes remembering the Magi:

Caspar,


write C+ 
  
Melchior,


write M+ 
  
and Balthasar,


write B+ 
  
know wisdom, prosperity and the presence of the Holy Spirit this year and always.


write 19

Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen 

Or you can simply say:

“Christus Mansionem Benedicat” 

which means

“May Christ bless this house”
