Lent Day 10: May the Word of God that we read transform us into the image of Christ

Michael Anokye: 23rd FEBRUARY, Friday

“This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”


Dear Holy and Almighty God, we thank You for Your fatherly love and the ways You work in our lives. As we move through this Lenten Season, we ask that You help us surrender any habits or preferences not aligned with Your perfect plan for us. We know that our ultimate glory will come when Your Son returns, and we pray that You will prepare us for that day. Thank You for Your grace and blessings. Amen.

READING: Mark 9:2-7 “After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with Him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There, Jesus was transfigured before them.

Jesus once took three disciples, Peter, James, and John, to a mountain where they witnessed something extraordinary. They saw Jesus in all His glory as the Son of God. The disciples could see and hear something different about Jesus by looking and listening to Him through a new approach. This experience taught them to appreciate the blessings in their lives and to try and see themselves, family, friends, community, and the world through the eyes of Jesus. As we listen to Jesus, we will be transformed, and our appearance will change as our sins are washed away, giving us the power to perceive the goodness of God in ourselves and others.


Heavenly Father, You revealed the true light of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, through the majesty of His transfiguration. May the Word of God that we read transform us into the image of Christ. Amen


What does this story teach you about prayer?

Today, when your phone rings and you answer, it reminds you that prayer is a two-way conversation. You should stop doing all the talking and start listening to God.

Spend five minutes in prayer, three minutes talking to God, and two minutes listening to God.
