Lent 2

Lord Jesus Christ,

On the mountain top Peter, James and John

Heard a voice declaring you to be God’s Son.

Though we do not live on mountain tops

Grant that we too may glimpse your glory.

May there be moments for us

When sight gives way to insight

And the paths of the earth

Become the road to heaven. Amen.
