I come before You this Easter Sunday with a heart full of gratitude and praise. As I reflect on the sacrifice of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I am reminded of Your incredible love for me.
I give thanks for the gift of salvation that was made possible through the death and resurrection of Jesus. I confess my sins and ask for Your forgiveness. I also ask for Your guidance and strength as I strive to live a life that is pleasing to You.
I pray for those who may not yet know You, that they may come to understand the truth of the gospel and the love that You have for them. I also lift up those who are going through difficult times and ask that You would provide them with comfort and peace.
I give thanks for the hope that I have in the resurrection, and I look forward to the day when I will be with You in heaven.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
