Second Sunday of Lent, 21 February: Genesis 15:5-12, 17-18; Psalm 27:1, 7-9, 13-14; Philippians 3:20-4:1; Luke 9:28-36 ~ I am a citizen of heaven
God of the covenant, your presence fills me with awe, your word gives me unshakeable hope. Fix in my heart the image of your Son in glory that I may walk with him in newness of life as a citizen of heaven. Grant this through Christ, my deliverance and hope, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, holy and mighty God for ever and ever. Amen.
