Christ Our Lord,
light of the world,
to you be all praise and glory!
Shine your light on us
this Easter season
so that we may reflect brilliantly
the glory of your resurrection.
Make us a blessing
for those who suffer,
live in fear or
who are overwhelmed by life.
And let the Spirit fill our hearts
with your loving presence
so that we may become
good stewards of your Gospel
out of love for you
who, for our sakes,
lived, died and rose from the dead;
you who live and reign with your
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
