Prayer for Easter

Almighty God,

On this day of Easter, we celebrate the resurrection of Your Son Jesus Christ and the victory He has won over sin and death. We are grateful for the sacrifice He made on the cross and the hope that He offers to all people through His resurrection.

We pray that this Easter will be a time of renewal and transformation for us. Help us to remember the great love You have for us and to share that love with others. May we strive to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and to live out His teachings in our daily lives.

We pray for those who are struggling, for those who are sick, and for those who are facing difficult times. Please bring them comfort, healing, and hope.

We also pray for the Church, that it may be a beacon of light in the world, showing Your love and grace to all.

Thank You for the gift of eternal life that You offer to us through the death and resurrection of Your Son. May we always rejoice in the hope and joy of the Easter season.

We pray all of these in Jesus’ name. Amen.
