Opening Prayer: Transfiguration

Here’s a prayer of invocation/illumination, suitable for the start of worship or prior to the reading/preaching of the Word.  It was written by Stephen Fearing, and posted on Wild and Precious Life.

Prayer
(inspired by Matthew 17:1-8, Mark 9:2-9, Luke 9:28-36, 2 Peter 1:16-18)

Reveal your presence to us this day,
O God of light, love, and glory.
As you did to your servants at the foot of the mountain,
send your Spirit to show us your story.
May the brilliance of your face
illuminate this place
as we dare to proclaim your Word
and may we, your people, be never unable
to tell all of that we have heard.
