Eternal God, renew us with the Spirit you gave to us in our baptism. Open our hearts, our minds, and our wills to worship you in truth and sincerity. As we await Easter morning and the celebration of the resurrection of Christ our Lord may your Holy Spirit lead us to shine as a light in a world that is darkened by fear, sorrow and distrust. Comfort all who suffer this day, through Jesus Christ, our Savior we pray. Amen.
