Greetings! As spring continues to unfold and we rejoice in the gift of the resurrection, I invite you to pray this prayer by Michaela Youngson, Superintendent Minister of the Ealing Trinity Circuit, (posted on https://re-worship.blogspot.com/2011/04/easter-prayer.html).
When everything was dark and it seemed that the sun would never shine again, your love broke through.
Your love was too strong, too wide, too deep for death to hold.
The sparks cast by your love dance and spread and burst forth with resurrection light.
Gracious God, we praise you for the light of new life made possible through Jesus.
We praise you for the light of new life that shone on the first witnesses of resurrection.
We praise you for the light of new life that continues to shine in our hearts today.
We pray that the Easter light of life, hope and joy, will live in us each day; and that we will be bearers of that light into the lives of others. Amen.
May the Easter joy of resurrection and new life fill your whole selves: mind, body, soul, and spirit.
Grace and peace, Rev. Sarina
