Let us pray (in silence) [that we cooperate with God’s will]
Grant, Lord, [or O God]
that the course of this world may be directed by your peaceful governance,
and that your church may be joyful as,
in confidence and serenity,
we serve your purpose;
through Jesus Christ, our Saviour
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Although RCL allows for the option of celebrating the Transfiguration this Sunday (rather than on the Second Sunday in Lent), I agree with the decision of the NZ Lectionary booklet to follow the majority Western Christian practice.
Do add any resources, ideas, and comments below.
