Transfiguration of Jesus by Armando Alemdar Ara via Wikimedia Commons CC BY-SA 3.0
Almighty and all-loving God,
through the fire of your Spirit
you have drawn the hearts of men and women
to share in the mystery of your bring;
by the power of the same Spirit
infuse our lives with your presence,
that, as your beloved Son was transfigured in prayer,
we too may be transformed,
and our lives become a flame of self-giving love.
