A Prayer for Transfiguration Sunday

Good Morning Lord,

We lift our voices high this morning singing praises to you alone.  Glory be to you, our God. 

You are there with us on days that are filled with joy and on days filled with sadness.  On bright, sunny days and on cloudy, rainy days.  During our times of busyness and those times of rest.  You are with us on days that begin and continue to feel chaotic and on days where everything goes smoothly. 

We pray for patience... we pray for understanding... we pray for peace... and we pray for love.

Our Father, you have provided us with mountain top experiences where we feel so incredibly close to you and we thank you for these moments.  Thank you for the grace moments that remind us that you are real and that we are your children.  Thank you for coming close to us and loving us--

Help us to let these moments empower us. 
Help us to love others as you love us.
Help us to be the hands of Christ and serve.
Help us to react and go without hesitation.
Continue to be with us in our moments.

We pray these things as you taught us to pray, Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.  Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom and the power forever and ever.  Amen.

*Thanks to my wonderful wife for this post, she wrote this prayer.
