We know the truth of the Easter proclamation.
Christ is risen and with him all creation!
Light replaces darkness, joy replaces sadness, life replaces death.
Through the power of your Spirit, there is no failure his love and mercy cannot reverse, no humiliation he cannot exchange with blessing, no anger he cannot dissolve, no routine he cannot transform.
All is embraced by the victory of your son’s cross and resurrection.
Help us always be good stewards of Easter’s light, see Resurrection as a daily event, and yearn for the love of Christ as intensely as he yearns for our love.
We pray this in Jesus’ name.
