The Transfiguration of the Lord

Opening Sentence

Today Jesus Christ was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as snow.

Today Jesus Christ was transfigured and the voice of the Father bore witness to him.

The Law was given by Moses, prophecy by Elijah: they were seen in majesty, shining with the Lord on the mountain.

Morning Reading: Revelation 21:10,23 (NLT)

glory of God 1

So he took me in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God.
_____

And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light.

Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, you are with God the Father and all power is given to you, in heaven and on earth. Help me to work well today: transfigure my heart with your presence – that I may see as you see.

+ Lord: I don’t always feel the joy and power of your presence; when I am weak and tired help me to look forward to the glory that is to come.
+ Lord: Remember all who live in depression and distress; bring to them new vision, and the hope of the gospel.
+ Lord: I praise you and thank you for the greatness of your glory; be with me as I set out to build up your new creation.

Father, at the Transfiguration in glory of your Only-Begotten Son, you confirmed the mysteries of faith by the witness to Jesus of the prophets Moses and Elijah. You foreshadowed there what I shall be when you bring my sonship to its perfection. Grant that by listening to the voice of Jesus I may become heirs with him, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.
