Easter PrayerAlmighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord's resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit.

Give us grace daily to know that, through resurrection, we have begun to live now in eternal life as well as in this world. May that truth guide us in the midst of the presence of death in this world and in the adversities that we may encounter.

We offer our [prayer and thanksgiving through our risen Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
