Responsive Thanksgiving For Easter Please join the words in the larger Bold type
O Lord, we give thanks for your redemptive love, we celebrate your eternal victory. We wonder at your mercy, we search for words to express the miracle of your coming for our salvation.
We remember your days on earth, your loving care for those around you and the suffering you experienced. We think of the morning when they found you risen to light and glory. Into radiant Easter joy instil the determination to do your will. Mingle our gratitude with repentance and let us respond in our measure to your measureless goodness.
We give you thanks, Lord Jesus, that you glorified your Human upon the earth and made it Divine, God with us. We praise you for breathing into us the breath of your own risen life. May we always seek to live our lives more truly in service to you and our neighbour.
We give you thanks, Lord Jesus, for your presence with us throughout our experience of life. May we be obedient to your direction, sensitive to your guidance, forgiving of others and confident of your risen life working through us.
Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said.
