Easter Prayer 2011

Happy Easter
Dear Heavenly Father,

As Easter Sunday approaches, let us take time to remember the events that took place leading up to this day so many years ago. We must not forget the anguish and pain that Jesus openly endured and welcomed, so that we may all be saved from a lifetime of suffering. Then three days later he rose from the dead, just as it was promised. His self-less act allows us to live knowing that we have received His promise of eternal life.

Dear Lord, this Easter please help us fully believe without any doubt. In the glorious Alleluias ringing out across the land, fill us with Your joy, O Risen Lord! Fill us with the certain hope that Jesus has overcome all evil, all sorrow, and all death. Help us to know beyond the shadow of a doubt that we too are risen with Jesus this Easter morning. Let us bring the light and joy of our Risen Savior to the whole world!

Lord Jesus, You are the hero of this story. You are the Lamb who laid down his life for us. You alone are our Victorious Redeemer!

Alleluia! He is risen as He said! If we have died with him,
then we shall also live with him.
2 Timothy 2:11

On behalf of our Living Grace family we wish you a Blessed Easter!
