“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 2 Peter 1:16-19

.

TODAY’S WORD…

…comes from none other than Saint Peter himself, who was present and witness, with two other Apostles, James and John, when Christ’s divinity was revealed in His glorious transfiguration on Mount Tabor.

.

“For we were not making up clever stories

when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

.

We saw His Majestic Splendour with our own eyes

when He received honour and glory from God the Father.

.

The voice from the Majestic Glory of God said to Him,

“This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”

We ourselves heard that Voice from Heaven

when we were with Him on the Holy Mountain.

.

Because of that experience,

we have even greater confidence in the message proclaimed by the prophets.

You must pay close attention to what they wrote,

for their words are like a lamp shining in a dark place –

until the Day dawns and Christ the Morning Star shines in your hearts.”

.

– 2 Peter 1:16-19 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

[…today, in our quiet place,

we ask the Holy Spirit to help us reflect, in the silence of our hearts,

on Christ’s glorious transfiguration…

Today, in our quiet place, we call upon the Lord and ask Him to fill our soul with joy…]

PRAYER…

.

My Lord, my God, my Bright Morning Star,

fill me with Your Light.

.

Open my eyes and let me see,

and help me begin to understand Your divine omnipotence,

and Your great love for me.

.

Jesus, my Saviour,

fill me with hope and joy,

and help me accept

that no suffering nor any difficulties I may face

can compare with the glory which You will reveal,

when I am brought before You, to bow in awe of Your Glorious Presence.

.

Lord, let my heart shout out in truth,

that there is no other Lord but You!

.

For this grace I pray, with all my heart.

.

Amen.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus my God, fill me with hope and joy; fill me with Your Light.

There is no other Lord but You!
