Prayers of the People for the Transfiguration of Our Lord 2014

Trusting the promise of God who enlightens all of life, we offer our prayers saying, “Light of the world,” and responding, “Shine on us and through us.”

[Short pause]

God of light, you shine in all of life.  Open our eyes to see.  Light of the world,
Shine on us and through us.

God of light, you shine in the darkest places.  Lead us to share your love and light in all the valleys we encounter.  Help us to embrace the people of Syria, Ukraine, the Central African Republic, and the poor of our own community.  Light of the world,
Shine on us and through us.

God of light, you shine in our confusion.  As you inspire our vision, keep us from self-condemnation; free us to respond with eagerness to the ministry opportunities which surround us.  Light of the world,
Shine on us and through us.

God of light, you shine in this congregation.  Open our lives to reflect your brilliant love, and show us the next step in our journey as your people.  Light of the world,
Shine on us and through us.

God of light, you shine in our need.  Use us to touch those who need healing, support, food, work, meaning and hope, especially those we name before you.
[Long pause]
Light of the world,
Shine on us and through us.

God of light, you shine in all of life.  Open our eyes to see.  Light of the world,
Shine on us and through us.

 

We pray in the name of Jesus, our light, our life, and our hope.
Amen.
