Lord God of all creation, may we be reminded that your deliverance in the resurrection of Jesus over our last enemy of death is assurance of life. Help us to be faithful in our daily walk with you, knowing that you are always in the process of bringing life to fulfillment. In the silence of our darkest hour may we feel your steadfast love that Jesus Christ brings to us. May we live this day with the hope of resurrection that swallows up death and darkness and brings light for our earthly journey. May your grace grow in us and through us to guide us this day. Thank you faithful God for the resurrected life you share with us and for the promise of your grace for a new day. Amen.
