Prayer of Confession for Transfiguration Sunday (Year C)

Holy God,
when you call us to hope and to act with great boldness,
we tremble at your presence and cover our eyes.
We are afraid of what we will see
for your greatness unveils our weakness,
your justice unveils our brokenness,
and your holiness unveils our stained past.
O Lord, hear our prayer.

Giver of all grace, forgive us our sins.
Give us the strength to renounce that which hides you from us.
Give us the wisdom to execute justice and righteousness.
Give us the courage to uncover our hearts
that we might see the grace of your Son
and not lose heart.

Prayer for Illumination for Transfiguration Sunday (Year C)

Below is a Prayer of Illumination for the upcoming Sunday (Last Sunday after Epiphany or Transfiguration Sunday, Year C, February 10th, 2013). This prayer is an experiment in a more “poetic” fashion of liturgy and I welcome your feedback/comments! Thanks!

Reveal your presence to us this day,
O God of light, love, and glory.
As you did to your servants at the foot of the mountain,
send your Spirit to show us your story.
May the brilliance of your face
illuminate this place
as we dare to proclaim your Word
and may we, your people, be never unable
to tell all of that we have heard.
