Prayer for Easter Sunday B

On this glorious Easter morn,
We praise your name and thank you for your faithfulness.
We marvel once again at the wonder of the resurrection
Of Jesus like kids finding hidden Easter eggs.
We are just as surprised as the women who came to the tomb that day.

We ask that this resurrection wipe away the tears from our eyes;
Bring hope to the hopeless,
Open the eyes of the blind,
Set the prisoners free and
Bring healing and wholeness to those who need it.

Lord we ask that this resurrection bring a revolution of justice.
May the hungry be fed,
The outcast be welcomed,
The downtrodden lifted up,
And those who are in poverty may been enriched.

Lord we ask that this resurrection bring renewal of our lives,
Restore our broken relationships,
Deepen our relationship with you,
Deepen our relationship with one another,
And empower us to bring the good news of your resurrection to others.
Amen
