Prayer 2381: Feast of the Transfiguration
Beloved Savior, we bow before you,
overcome by your glory.
We laud and magnify your Holy Name,
You who came
to remind us of the sacredness of humanity
by taking on human flesh
and revealing the unity of God with us
in joy as well as pain.
You dazzle our eyes
and fill our hearts with wonder,
awed and amazed by your steadfast love,
O Blessed Jesus.
May we reveal you and your gospel
as your hands and face in the world;
may we look with loving eyes on creation,
all of it a gift of God to us and for us,
and work for justice and reconciliation in your Name.
Abide within our hearts, Lord Christ,
and prosper our holy work of peace, we humbly pray,
that we may overcome hopelessness and apathy
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Give your angels charge, Lord,
over those who weep or watch in anxiety this day,
and grant the balm of your blessing
to all for whom we pray.
