Pastoral Prayer: Easter Sunday

Here’s a pastoral prayer for Easter from the Education for Justice website.

Easter Prayer


Living God,
who came to this world
and entered human pain,
come and be in every painful place in our lives,
be in every painful place in our world.

Living God,
who in the secret darkness rose from the grave,
come and be in the secret, dark places in our lives,
be in every secret, dark place in our world.

Living God,
who sent the women to proclaim the resurrection
to the frightened, imprisoned apostles,
come and empower us in every frightened, imprisoned place in our lives,
empower all in every frightened, imprisoned place in our world.

Living God, Risen Son, Easter God,
come and make us your living Church,
Your risen Church,
Your Easter Church,
in every place in our world.
