a prayer for Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday prayer

O Lord,
How amazing is your love,  A love that overcomes, endures and redeems.
How astounding is your life, A life that sustains, heals and creates.
How awesome is your hope ,A hope that promises, restores and inspires.
How absorbing is your truth, A truth that releases, changes and rebuilds.

How we worship you, as we remember the moment when your love conquered.
When out of the cave of sorrow Jesus arose to release forgiveness to the world.
And each time we encounter this resurrection day we are again lifted to an eternal place.
Our sin, brokenness and darkness fall away and your light and peace flood our lives.
How we thank you for this incredible celebration we call Easter.

Amen.

a prayer for resurrection power

O God, this glorious Easter morning the resurrection promises us the inheritance of new life in Jesus Christ. May we live in resurrection power as your abiding grace moves us to ensure that the full abundance of your creation is used to conquer  hunger and poverty in our world as surely as you have conquered sin, death and the grave..  Amen
