Prayer for Transfiguration Sunday

Our request for the light of God to shine in our lives brightly and in full force is heard and will be answered.


Radiant God, source of light,

as you surrounded Jesus with your glory,

so you come to us in penetrating brightness.


You catch us off guard and expose our weakness.


We choose the limelight while you call us to explore the shadows

and brighten the darkness.


We seek the spectacular while you bind up the broken in

countless acts of mercy.


We seek to stay on the mountain or in a comfortable pew while

you walk to the valleys of need.


Radiant God,

fill us with light and courage to carry good news into all the

corners of the world and to bring back the joy of your presence.
