Jesus on the Cross

 

Yesterday we were crucified with Christ; today we are glorified with Him.  Yesterday we were dead with Christ; today we are sharing His resurrection.  Yesterday we were buried with Him; today we are waking with Him from the sleep of death.

Gregory of Nazianzus (329 – 389)

A Prayer for Easter

Calvary

Calvary

As we join in worship in this Easter season,
Waken us, Lord, to your living presence.
You are among us.
Help us to find you here.
You are in the world outside this place.
Help us to find you there.
You come to us in unexpected ways and in unexpected places.

Help us to find you in the unexpected.
You show your face to us in faces we do not recognise as yours.
Open the eyes of our hearts and minds.
As we join in worship today,
Waken us, Lord, to your living presence.
Amen
