Father, I thank you for Jesus your only begotten son.
I appreciate the sacrifice that has given me eternal life.
I am grateful for the knowledge that my departed loved ones
are with you and I have hope in the midst of despair.
Help me, Lord, to live my life in a way that honours you.
Give me the strength to model Christ to all I encounter.
I ask you to bless my family.
Help us to guard our hearts, minds and bodies.
You alone are worthy of our praise.
Thank you for this Easter Sunday
And what it represents.
In Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
