Prayer of the Day
O God, you gave your only Son to suffer death on the cross for
our redemption, and by his glorious resurrection you delivered us from the
power of death. Make us die every day to sin, that we may live with him
forever in the joy of the resurrection, through your Son, Jesus Christ our
Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
Sunday Scripture Readings:
Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24
1 Corinthians 15:19-26
Mighty God, in whom we know the power of redemption, you stand among us in
the shadows of our time. As we move through every sorrow and trial of this
life, uphold us with knowledge of the final morning when, in the glorious
presence of your risen Son, we will share in his resurrection, redeemed
and restored to the fullness of life and forever freed to be your people.
exult in your love, O God of the living, for you made the tomb of
death the womb from which you bring forth your Son, the first-born of a
new creation, and you anointed the universe with the fragrant Spirit of
his resurrection. Make us joyful witnesses to this good news, that all
humanity may one day gather at the feast of new life in the kingdom where
you reign for ever and ever. Amen.
