Second Week of Lent
February 28, 2021
Lord, as we draw close to you in these moments, quiet us within that we may hear You and follow where you lead.
As we we enter the Lenten journey again, we are reminded that Jesus offers us the Words of life, as He is the Word that gifts us with life.
Read the scripture through slowly a few times. The second time, notice the word or phrase to which where you are drawn. The third time, reflect on how this word or phrase speaks to your life right now.
Scripture: Mark 9:2-9
“Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, “This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!” Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus. As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.”
Prayer of Response
Our True North, How many times gracious God are we so easily distracted, and heading in the wrong direction. You remind us to quiet ourselves and just to listen, to listen deep within to your voice which resides within. When we don’t know what to do or what to say, when we feel out of sorts and have lost our way, help us to turn within once again, listening and following You. You are our True North. We are at home in you as you have made your home within us. Bless You our True North, Amen.
