Prayer of Intercession: Transfiguration

Here’s a prayer of intercession based on the scripture texts for February 19 (Transfiguration Sunday).  It was written by Paul Sauer.

Prayers of the People:
Sunday of the Transfiguration
(Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-9, Luke 9:28-36)

Heavenly Father, working through human events to show your presence and strength, work through each of us as we seek to respond to your call to serve.
Let us walk: In the light of the Lord.

Almighty God, shine in our lives like you do in the universe, maintaining life, order, balance and forever making new creations. Mend us as needed, bend us as necessary, that we may be your new creation, in body, mind and spirit.
Let us walk: In the light of the Lord.

Holy Spirit, put your seal upon us that we may be filled with zeal for God's work through us as his agents of reconciliation.
Let us walk: In the light of the Lord.

Lord Jesus Christ, when we do not know what to do when we are overwhelmed by God's intervention in our lives, give us the wisdom to listen, to marvel, and to renew our commitment to follow you all the days of our lives.
Let us walk: In the light of the Lord.

Transfigure your world as you transfigure your church, Lord God, that all may be made new and whole.
Let us walk: In the light of the Lord.

We pray for all who have needs beyond our power to meet, knowing that you, alone, are the Great Physician _____.
Let us walk: In the light of the Lord.

Light of the world, shine upon us.  Amen.
