Jesus Christ is risen! Alleluia!
O God, we pray for what needs to rise in us.
May stillness rise in us.
The stillness of Mary of Magdala
who came to the tomb while it was dark
and heard the voice within telling her
to spread the word.
May gratitude rise in us.
The gratitude of Thomas
who came to believe
and uttered his prayer for all ages,
“My Lord and my God!”
May joy rise in us.
The joy of the disciples
on their way to Emmaus
who recognized him in bread broken
and Scriptures fulfilled.
May peace rise in us.
The peace lavished on the disciples
when receiving the Holy Spirit and
being sent to spread forgiveness
and life in Jesus’ name.
May love rise in us.
The love of the Good Shepherd
who knows each of us by name,
who calls us, who leads us
in the ways of love and compassion.
Thanks, Ann. Needs to be on a prayer card.
