August 6 Prayer
‘But when they became fully awake, they saw his glory…’
Awaken us to the fullness of God in Christ.
God revealed his complete self in Jesus.
Bring your weary body and blurred vision into God's presence to be changed now.
We pray to the Lord;
‘May we become more than stargazers,
fully awake to your glory in us.
As you were changed before the disciples eyes,
would you change our eyes to see you beyond the visible.
Beyond the roaring seas and turbulence of our world.
As we emerge into something other than normal may your glory shine upon us.
May we reveal your likeness as we become fully awakened out of our slumber.
Let us not go back to the way things were but allow your transfiguration to take place in us.
In the way we operate our daily lives and in the way we diverge or intersect with others.
May the work you completed on the cross be the message we bring for reconciliation of all things.
We awaken today to the power of change.
May we look through an new window of prayer and stillness,
love and adoration to be in your glorious presence.
Transform the way we look at what is happening around us.
For you are the only hope for the distant seas,
Come visit the earth we pray and send your rain to make the streams overflow with your glory.
