Prayer for the week:  God, open our eyes to experience your glory, we pray to you this morning.  Lift us up on your wings of love, and guide us with your wisdom and truth.  Empower us to be your people so that our lives, like that of Jesus, may be transformed and transfigured to share your love and grace.
In the name of the holy and living One, we pray.  Amen.
