The resurrection of Jesus has given each of us new life and renewed hope.
We ask for help to live as new people in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Lord, grant us wisdom to know what we must do—-
the will to want to do it
the courage to undertake it
the perseverance to continue to do it
and the strength to complete it.
The great gift of Easter is hope – Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God – in His ultimate triumph and in His goodness and love – which nothing can shake.
May your joy and hope and strength rise with the SON and the sun this morning!
