The Day of Resurrection

“. . .  just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” Romans 6:4

Lord, as we celebrate your resurrection, help us to live a new life.

Resurrect in us a spirit of thrift, that we may be better stewards of the resources you have entrusted to us;

Resurrect in us a spirit of service, that we may share your love with others;

Resurrect in us a spirit of compassion, so that as we make spending decisions, we work to care for those whose suffering is great;

Resurrect in us a spirit of forgiveness and respect for others so that by listening to each other we might better discern your will;

Resurrect in us a spirit of responsibility, so that we might live lives worthy of the calling we have received;

Resurrect in us a respect for the rule of law and the institutions of government that were designed by our founders to preserve domestic tranquility, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to us and all our posterity; and

Resurrect in us a spirit of hope, the hope that we might still become one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Amen.
