Easter Prayer

Lord, the resurrection of Your Son

Has given us new life and renewed hope.

Help us to live as new people

In pursuit of the Christian ideal.

Grant us wisdom to know what we must do,

The will to want to do it,

The courage to undertake it,

The perseverance to continue to do it,

And the strength to complete it.


Halleluia!         Jesus is Risen!


He is Risen indeed!
