Saturday Prayers: Easter, 2019
Easter Weekend 2019
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way, AND THE LORD HAS LAID ON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL CHRIST BECAME OBEDIENT UNTO DEATH – EVEN DEATH ON A CROSS.
Lord, we pray you of your mercy, forgive us all that is past, and grant that we may serve you in newness of life to the glory of your name. Amen
Easter Day – Sunday, April 21st, 2019
THE LORD IS RISEN INDEED – THANKS BE TO GOD – ALLELUIA, AMEN.
Lord of all life and power, through the mighty resurrection of your Son, Jesus Christ, you have overcome the old order of sin and death and made all things new in him. May we being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, reign with him in glory, who with You and the Holy Spirit is alive, ONE GOD NOW AND FOR EVER, WORLD WITHOUT END, ALLELUIA, AMEN.
The Day of Resurrection! Earth, tell it out abroad, the passover of gladness, the passover of God! From death to life eternal, from earth unto the sky, our Christ has brought us over with hymns of victory. Alleluia, Amen.
Giver of all life, we are nourished in this Easter Festival by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Fill us with His Spirit of Love, unite us in faith, hope and love, that we may in life and death witness to the resurrection, and show your glory to all the world; In the name and for the sake of Jesus Christ our Risen Lord. Alleluia, Amen.
In Joy and Praise of the Resurrection of Jesus Let us pray to the source of all life:
For the peace of the world, That the spirit of love and peace may dwell in the hearts of all people.
That isolated and persecuted people may find fresh strength in the EASTER GOSPEL.
That wars and famine may cease through all the earth and that all people may live to the GLORY OF God our Creator and Redeemer.
That the Light of Christ may be with the sick the weak and the dying, and that all may live to the GLORY OF HIS HOLY NAME.
