Resurrection and Redemption

I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Ph.3:10-11

This week’s prayer borrows from the contemporary collects for Easter week in the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer:

Almighty God, who gave your only Son to die for our sins and to rise for our justification:

Open the eyes of our faith that we may behold him in all his redeeming work;

Grant that we may show forth in our lives what we profess in our faith;

Give us grace so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness, that we may always serve you in pureness of living and truth; and

Recall us to life, that your light may shine in us, and through us.

We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
