CALL TO PRAYER
The tomb is empty. Christ is risen!
Christ is risen indeed! Let us abide in Christ’s love and live in light of resurrection.
OPENING PRAYER Resurrected Christ, you who speak peace to us in our chaos, thank you for inviting us to reach out in our doubts to know you more. Breathe your Holy Spirit afresh upon us this day as we commune with you in prayer. Amen.
CONFESSION AND PARDON Forgive us when we hold too tight to the old ways when our faith of old seems to fail.
Open our eyes when we resist or reject the new thing you are doing. When we speak in ways that harm, when we think of ourselves and others as less, when our actions break apart the communion, when our love is lacking, your Holy Spirit lifts us from these dead ways into new life. Resurrection challenges our assumptions, fears, and failures. Forgive us for not living in light of resurrection.
Here the good news: God, in Christ, forgives us that we may abide in God’s power of resurrection. In the name of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven! Glory to God. Amen.

CLOSING PRAYER Mysterious Christ, you who have risen from the dead, raise us up into new life now and in the world to come. As you raise us may we hear you speak your word of peace into our lives. May the power of resurrection that brings peace, help us to see ourselves, see all others, see all of creation in this new light. By your Holy Spirit help us to live as a people communing together in light of resurrection. Amen.
