It is hard to believe it is April already and Easter this weekend! As we move into the experience of crucifixion and resurrection during the next few days, here is an Easter prayer I would like to share with you. We have been praying this during Holy Week Prayer at Noon.
From the fear that can hold us rigid,
God of gentleness, ease us forward.
In our fear of surrender
God of warmth, melt the ice around our hearts.
From our fear of making decisions
God of power, release us.
In our fear of losing respect,
God of courage, steady us.
From the fear of facing our fear,
God of laughter, loosen us.
But in the fear that marks your presence,
God of love, keep is in awe and wonder.
I don't know the source of this prayer but acknowledge the author with gratitude.
In the darkness of Friday, and light of Easter Sunday, may there be hope and the rejuvenation of new life for each one.
