Easter Pastoral Prayer

Almighty God, Lord and Giver of Life, in the joy of this Easter morning, may we see ourselves new in the freshness of resurrection.  Help us to open our reluctant spirits to the glad tidings of this day, that they may be sustained with the sacrament of the gratitude and praise.  Strengthen us to live a holy life now.  May we learn again to walk with eager steps, as those who have been healed, who have heard the shouts of victory, who look to the day when every worldly care dissolves and every selfish concern is crowded out by thy presence.  Enter our prayers so we speak as people of the resurrection who expect and hope for what they ask.  Yet keep our concerns worthy of the calling to which we are called and make our flesh and our wills ready to act on your words, in the praise of God and the love of people through Jesus Christ our risen and redemptive Lord.  Amen
