Lent prayer series - Easter Sunday

 

Thank you for joining us on our prayer journey through Lent. Have a very happy and blessed Easter.

Prayer visual for today: 

         

You might like to decorate your cross with bright spring flowers today and display it outside for the next few days, as a symbol of the joy of Easter and all Christ won for us on one day, two thousand years ago, that lasts forever. 

 

Prayer activities and ideas for this today:               

 

You might like to pray in summary for everything that was on your list from Ash Wednesday. You might also like to stand, face each of the compass points in turn, and pray for the things in the community, nation and world that are in that direction, with a particular focus on:

 

 

  • the joy of Jesus's resurrection life to be made known to us all
  • for the breakthrough and transformation in situations and systems which seem beyond hope 

 

Prayer starter: 

 

Lord Jesus, our long, dark walk through Lent is finished. This new day is bathed in your resurrection light. Risen Lord Jesus, may we live in the knowledge and reality of Easter as we spend our lives on loving you - for yours is the victory, the sovereignty, the power and the glory forever and ever, and there is nothing, and no-one, that you cannot reach and redeem.
