The Feast of the Transfiguration

Episcopal Revised Common Lectionary - Year B, Proper 13, Track 2

 

Presider:  It is good for us to be here in your glorious presence, Almighty One:  Awaken us to the needs of the world, that we may offer all things to your compassionate love and become mediators of your unifying vision, as we pray:  Proclaim the greatness of our God; for our God is the Holy One.

 

Litanist:  Remove the veil when your Church seeks you, O God, and enlighten us with your vision, that we may be eyewitnesses of Christ's majesty and serve the world as people moved by the Holy Spirit.  Proclaim the greatness of our God;

for our God is the Holy One.

 

Let the glory of your holiness be revealed to the leaders of our nation and be manifest to all in authority, O Mighty One, that they may hear your voice and serve your mission of righteousness and justice, declared by the law and the prophets and fulfilled in Jesus Christ.  Proclaim the greatness of our God;

for our God is the Holy One.

 

You love justice and establish equity, O Righteous One:  Visit with your transfiguring presence every person and home in need of your light and your blessing throughout the world.  Proclaim the greatness of our God;

for our God is the Holy One.

 

Visit this mountain of holy presence, O Radiant One, and let the cloud of your glory overshadow our community, that with joy we may behold your appearance and be led by your light.  Proclaim the greatness of our God;

for our God is the Holy One.

 

Listen to our prayers as we speak to you and comfort us with your dawning Spirit.

Presider:  Blessed Creator God, let Christ, the morning star, rise in our hearts as we awaken to his glorious presence in our midst:  Fill us with gratefulness as your dazzling light breaks through our cloud of unknowing in every place and time, that we may tell of the things which we have seen and mediate your reconciling presence in all the world, through Jesus Christ our Savior, who with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.
