UNITED IN PRAYER
A PRAYER RESOURCE FOR FAMILIES, INDIVIDUALS AND HOUSEHOLDS.
Second Sunday in Lent
Take a moment to still yourself. Take a deep breath and ask God for a renewed sense of presence with you in this moment.
O God, who have commanded us
to listen to your beloved Son,
be pleased, we pray,
to nourish us inwardly by your word,
that, with spiritual sight made pure,
we may rejoice to behold your glory.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Sing or listen
R: I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living.
Romans 8: 31b-34
Jesus is transfigured on the mountain in the presence of Peter, James, and John.
They hear a voice from the cloud: “This is my Son, my beloved. Listen to him!”
Jesus gives the disciples orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
This section is designed to be adapted depending on how you are gathering to pray. There are links to external resources for children and young people. There is also a reflection which can be used by individuals or adapted to be used in groups.
Loving God, take our hands and lead us out of the shadows of our fear. Bring us to your truth and help us to respond to your generous love. Let us recognize the fullness of your love which will fill our lives. Free us from the darkness in our hearts. In your name we pray. Amen.
