Here’s a prayer of affirmation and commitment for Easter Sunday.
Christ, you are risen with the sun;
you are light in darkness, warmth in our cold.
You are peace and hope and joy,
for you went willingly to death.
You turned defeat and failure to victory for all.
You live eternally
and with you all the living and the dead
who trust in you.
May we who in baptism die to sin,
rise again to new life
and find our true place in your living body.
May the covenant sealed in your blood
through us bring healing and reconciliation
to this wounded world.
You are risen.
We are risen with you.
Praise and glory to the living God!
