Prayer of Petition: Transfiguration

Here’s a prayer for Transfiguration from the United Methodist Book of Worship.

Prayer of Petition
(inspired by Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36)

God of glory and mercy,
before his death in shame your Son went to the mountain top,
and you revealed his life in glory.
Where prophets witnessed to him, you proclaimed him your Son,
but he returned to die among us.

Help us face evil with courage,
knowing that all things, even death,
are subject to your transforming power.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
