Prayer for Transfiguration Sunday

Here’s a prayer for Transfiguration Sunday from Rachel Hackenberg.

Sunday Prayer: Transfiguration

On the verge of Lent,
we pitch a tent to wait for you
O Jesus our Light and God’s glory.

Wait here for us.

We are anxious and rushed.
These mountaintop moments are fleeting;
we cannot absorb enough peace
to satisfy our need.

Wait here for us.

We are tired and doubtful.
Your brilliance doesn’t ignite us
as it used to; we have abdicated the desire
to be a flint against which you spark.

Wait here for us.

Be gracious, Jesus. Wait for us
when we struggle to see your vision, to hear
your voice, to get lost in your cloud.
Love us still, we pray.

Wait here for us.

Rise in our hearts,
O Christ, the Beautiful Dawn!
By your love, renew and transform us!
