Food for Thought-Opening Prayer for Transfiguration Sunday


God of Mountains and Valleys,

You have called us to journey with you up the mountain. As we climb the rough side of our own history, we wait for the transformation of our lives. All the while, we remain woefully unaware that you have already transfigured our souls and reshaped our priorities. The path we took up is not the trail we take down. Our world will be different on the other side. The witness of the mountain is found in the love we share down in the valley. The story of the summit is reflected in the light we bring to those living in the cold and dark. May the dialect spoken in the sweet mountain conversations with Jesus become a language shared and understood by all.

In Jesus’ Name,

Richard Bryant
