Father God and Lord of Life,
You who call forth from the darkness of death all those who love You, we rejoice, on this Easter Sunday, in the resurrection from the dead of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the miracle of abundant life here and eternal life with You in heaven. Help me celebrate that life every day, as I seek You and follow Your plan for my life.
Visit our home with Your blessings of peace and life. May the Risen Christ, our Lord and Saviour, be the True Master of our hearts, homes and churches, as we celebrate His resurrection on this Easter Sunday.
Today, I say with the Apostle Paul, “Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?”
Dear Lord, may I realise afresh today what Your Son’s death and resurrection mean for me. Forgiveness, freedom, and the ability to walk with You through this fallen world into eternity. May I always find my satisfaction in You and Your willingness to offer Yourself to me.
Lord God, You loved this world so much, that You gave Your one and only Son, that we might be called Your children too. Lord, help us to live in the gladness and grace of Easter Sunday, everyday.
Let us have hearts of thankfulness for Your sacrifice. Let us have eyes that look upon Your grace and rejoice in our salvation. Help us to walk in that mighty grace and tell Your good news to the world.
We pause in the midst of this prayer to remember all the holy dead of our family who live now in You and who await the final and glorious resurrection of the dead. May they and we, because of our faith in You, our God, taste in the victory of life over death.
All for Your glory do we pray, Lord.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
