Collects and Prayers

Collect for the Transfiguration


God of Glory,

You gave the vision of your Son

To those who watched on the mountain;

Grant that by our glimpses of him,

We may be changed into his glorious likeness,

For he lives and reigns with you,

and the Holy Spirit,

One God, now and for ever.   Amen.



Lord of compassion and power,

be with those affected by the Corona Virus as so many suffer 

while others’ lives are disrupted and filled with uncertainty.  

Give your grace and strength to all who minister 

to their needs of body, mind and spirit. 

Heal and help those who are traumatised by what is happening. 

Give peace to the dying. 

Comfort and support the bereaved, broken and confused, 

and to all who are working to bring relief, 

give strength and resilience 

to do their work well;

In the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen
