Prayer as Epiphany Ends

Here’s a prayer for Transfiguration Sunday, or the last Sunday in Epiphany.  It was written by Rachel Hackenberg.

Prayer: Light a Light for Us

Before the light of Epiphany fades,
before we don the ashes of Lent,
O Jesus we pray:
light a light for us.

Light a light for us that is brighter
than our vanities and fabricated pleasures.

Light a light that is stronger than our fears and our faith.

Light a light for us, O Jesus,
for we are flailing in the dark,
injuring one another as we grope for some
certainty and assurance along our way.

Light a light that blazes in brilliance and proves
the shadows in our lives to be fleeting and insidious.

Light such a light, we pray with longing.
Light a light for us
that leads us to peace.
