Prayer of the Day
O God, in the transfiguration of your Son you confirmed the mysteries of the faith by the witness of
Moses and Elijah, and in the voice from the bright cloud declaring Jesus your beloved Son,
you foreshadowed our adoption as your children. Make us heirs with Christ of your glory, and bring us to enjoy its fullness, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. (ELCA Lectionary for the Last Sunday after Epiphany)
