Easter Prayer

Lord our God, we thank and praise you for the greatness of your love, shown to us in Jesus Christ,

who was willing to die for us to bring us into your family,

and to bless us with the life that lasts for ever.

We thank you for the new life we celebrate at Easter;

help us to keep growing in the life that never comes to an end.

We pray for our families, our friends, and all those we care about:

fill them with hope and happiness.

We pray for people who are unhappy today: those who are hungry,

or homeless, those who fear violence or harm;

may they find protection and peace.

We pray for those who are ill, or facing difficulties:

may they find hope in the cross of Christ,

and be strengthened by the knowledge of your love.

Lord, accept our prayers, and be with us now and for ever.

Amen.
