A Prayer of Thanks - an Easter Prayer
thank you for sending your Son to earth
as a baby so many years ago.
Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins
by dying on the cross.
And thank you that He rose again
to prove that death was truly defeated.
I place my trust in You to be my Saviour.
Guide me through the dark times of my life
and give me courage to live for You.
