Easter Sunday Morning Prayer
(an Easter prayer to the Holy Trinity)
Risen, alive and full of grace.
You paid such a price that we may live in freedom today.
We worship your holy name
and give thanks for your redeeming grace.
May we drink in your tender love so that
we can pour this love out to others.
Come reign in our hearts, minds and spirits.
We welcome you to blow through
our every word, action and thought.
Come transform us on the inside so that each day
we become more like our risen Lord.
A Prayer for Easter Eyes
My Lord Jesus,
You have risen to new life!
Give me new eyes with which to recognize
Your presence in the world around me.
Sharpen my vision so that I see beyond the
ordinary events of each day and into the
extraordinary reality of your grace.
Brighten my view of the world with renewed
hope in the coming of your Kingdom.
Soften my gaze so that I view others with the
kind of tenderness and compassion you
showed to so many.
May each day of this Easter season provide
glimpses of your glory.
In your sacred name, I pray.
