prayers for blessing, abundance and good life.
by Max Lucado
Heavenly Father, thank you for
sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid
the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose
again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my
Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live
for You. Amen
THANK YOU, LORD,
for the gift of Your love.
May I be a shining
example of that love to others.
Of all of
shows us our fate
Forgiven we will rise
And pass through Heaven's gate
The sacrifice of a Son
And through His resurrection
Eternal life we have won remember
That the love of God
Inside your heart
God Bless You! I pray
"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
Christ is Risen: The world below
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead,
the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are his forever and ever
St. Hippolytus (AD 190-236)
O Jesus, King,
receive my supplication,
and consider my supplication,
as a pledge to You.
For you, O living King,
have gone forth and gone up,
out of Hell,
Woe to those who have rejected
For, to evil spirits and demons,
You are sorrow,
to Satan and to Death,
You are pain,
To Sin and Hell,
You are mourning.
Yet, joy has come today,
for those who are born anew.
On this great day therefore,
We give great glory to You,
who died and is now alive,
that to all you may give
life and resurrection!
Adapted by David Bennett from
Nisibene Hymn 36:17,18, by St. Ephrem the Syrian
God, give us
eyes to see
the beauty of the Spring,
And to behold Your majesty
in every living thing -
And may we see in lacy leaves
and every budding flower
The Hand that rules the universe
with gentleness and power -
And may this Easter grandeur
that Spring lavishly imparts
Awaken faded flowers of faith
lying dormant in our hearts,
And give us ears to hear, dear God,
the Springtime song of birds
With messages more meaningful
than man's often empty words
Telling harried human beings
who are lost in dark despair -
'Be like us and do not worry
for God has you in His care.
Helen Steiner Rice
you, Lord God of our salvation,
to you be praise and glory for ever.
As once you ransomed your people from Egypt
and led them to freedom in the promised land,
so now you have delivered us from the dominion of darkness
and brought us into the kingdom of your risen Son.
May we, the first fruits of your new creation,
rejoice in this new day you have made,
and praise you for your mighty acts.
Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Blessed be God for ever.
