Today’s text

Matthew 17:5-7

Suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and suddenly from the cloud there came a voice which said, 'This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favor. Listen to him.' When they heard this, the disciples fell on their faces, overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them, saying, 'Stand up, do not be afraid.


Touch us this, day, Jesus.

Touch us with the love that won’t let us go.

Touch us that our sadness may dissolve in the gentle rain of your grace.

Touch us that our weary souls may feel fresh and new.

Touch us that hope may burn away the dejection of despair.

Touch us that certainty and resolve may overwhelm our doubts and fears.

Touch us that joy and expectation may fill us at the gift of this day.

Touch us that energy and strength may replace fatigue and weakness.

Touch us that that the negative voices noise in our head may be silenced.

Touch that we may hear the deep inner voice where you speak.

Touch us that our distracted minds may see the beauty of your face.

Touch us that and our scattered energies may serve your purpose.

Touch us that we may feel and know ourselves once more.

Touch us and fill our neediness with your peace

Touch us, Jesus.

Touch us with the love that never lets us go.

Pr. David L. Miller
