Our prayer for this Third Sunday of Easter
Lord, our hearts are glad and our souls rejoice. Jesus Christ has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon! This is the One commended to us by God with mighty deeds, wonders, and signs.
We abound with joy in the knowledge with the One delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God. Lord, you have shown us the path of life - living, dying, and being released from the throes of death – it now is as impossible for us with the sacrifice of the precious blood of Christ as of a spotless unblemished lamb.
Stay with us, Lord, for we remain uncertain in the moment but for the knowledge that you are our allotted portion and our cup. Our hearts are burning within us as we consume all that you have given us. <image source>
