Prayer for today

Lord Jesus Christ,

Crucified and raised from the dead

we come to worship you,

We call on your power 

to release us from our tombs,

to bring us out from the darkness which engulfs this world

to free us from the tentacles of sin which entangle us.

 

We believe that in your dying you conquered death

and in your rising again you set us free from sin and hell.

 

We bless your holy name as

we gaze at the empty tomb 

and we wonder what it can mean.

How it can be?

 

Accept our praise today.

We bring it along with our doubt and our questions 

and what little faith we have

Bring us closer to you

and fill us with joy and hope

even today.

Amen

Thought for this week for Easter Sunday (based on Luke 24:1-11)


The first Easter was not a joyful day, but a confused one. Yes, it heralded a new beginning, and real hope after the trauma of the crucifixion on Good Friday. Jesus was alive! Yet, it took time for the disciples and the women to understand what the empty tomb meant. What it really meant for their lives. What it really means for our lives.
