Easter Week Morning Prayers

Alleluia, Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

No longing in the tomb but in the garden, Mary cries Rabbi.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
Once more in that upper room, where all are gathered, except one.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
On the dusty road, where eyes shut are then opened in the breaking of bread.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
On the beach for breakfast with weary fishers.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
Behind closed doors, do not touch, but believe.
Alleluia, Christ is Risen!

Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
Do not bring us to the time of trial but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Jesus, risen, alive and full of grace.
You paid such a price that we may live in freedom today.
We worship your holy name and give thanks for your redeeming grace.
Abba in your great love you raised Christ from the dead,
May we drink in your tender love so that we can pour this love out to others.
Come reign in our hearts, minds and spirits.
Holy Spirit, we welcome you to blow through our every word, action and thought.
Come transform us on the inside so that each day we become more like our risen Lord.
Amen.


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all evermore. Amen.
