The Sunday before Lent - Transfiguration Sunday
Prayer for the week
The injustice of suffering is distressing and incomprehensible. Give us courage to turn towards and not against you in our sorrow, pain or misfortune, and inspire us always to work against the suffering of others; for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, who reveals your heart of compassion in moments of both suffering and glory.
Canon Carol Wardman
Collect for the week
whose Son was revealed in majesty
before he suffered death upon the cross:
give us grace to perceive his glory,
that we may be strengthened to suffer with him
and be changed into his likeness, from glory to glory;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
