From the Prayer Corner – An Easter Prayer!
Dear Lord, we lift our hearts to You. As the dawn breaks on Easter Sunday morning, we remember the veil of darkness transforming to the brightest light. The most dreadful end becoming the most beautiful beginning. May we carry the unity we share into every moment knowing that we are one with the risen Christ.
Lord, we lift our eyes to You. As the sun rises, we remember with trembling hearts the depths of despair fading to reveal hope everlasting. The curse of death defeated by eternal life. We remember with thankfulness Your willingness to be pierced for our sins. May this moment stay with us, reminding us to look for the beautiful colors of promise in Your Word and in Your world this Spring.
Lord, we lift our prayers to You. As the dew air falls, may we breathe each Spring morning in and know that like the earth, You sustain us, keep us and work within us always. Thank You for the promise of heaven and Your generous invitation of eternal life for all.
Lord, we life our lives in service to You. As we remember that first Easter, and Your work on the cross, we are so grateful for Your gift of salvation and the promise of eternal life with You. Show us where we can help and serve others and lead them to You.
And so, we lift our voices to You. We praise You, and we sing with abounding joy of Your miraculous rise, from death’s tomb to resplendent life. We celebrate the greatest day in history, when Jesus rose from the dead, defeated darkness, and bathed the world in stunning Resurrection light. May we ever live to love You and praise You! Amen.

The Easter feeling does not end.
It signals a new beginning,
Of nature, spring, and brand new life,
And friendship, peace, and giving.
The spirit of Easter is all about
Hope, and love, and joyful living. - Anonymous
