Prayer For Easter Day

(from www.lifeandwork.org)

 

This is the day the Lord has made
the day hope comes striding from an empty tomb
the day joy comes dancing through grief and pain
 
With glad and thankful hearts
we join with Christian people the world over
and with the saints in heaven
to bless You for the dying and undying love
of our Saviour Christ
for the Lord is risen
he is risen indeed
 
Wherever conflict flares
roll back the stone
and let Your people find peace
in the triumph of the Prince of Peace
 
Wherever Your people are oppressed
roll back the stone
and let Your people find freedom
in the good news of an empty tomb.
 
Wherever Your people are sick, mourning or in need
roll back the stone
and let this day of Resurrection
bring healing, comfort and hope
 
For a new day has dawned
and the way to life stands open
in the rising to life of life itself
our Saviour Christ
 
Hallelujah
 
Amen
 
The Rt Rev Dr Russell Barr
