Heavenly Father, we thank You for the message of Easter, of the risen Christ among us. Especially today in the middle of Easter week, we are conscious that there is so much that is uncertain, so much we can not predict and so much we neither know nor understand. Lord in Your great mercy, assure us of the victory of Christ.
Remind us once more in this week of Easter, that in all the changes and chances of our nation only You are our unchanging Rock, an unfailing Deliverer and our eternal hope. Lord in Your great mercy, assure us of the victory of Christ.
Help us to continue to celebrate Easter in the next few days of this Easter week. Knowing that Your love continues through all things, Your power continues through all things and Your presence is with us in all things. Lord in Your great mercy, assure us of the victory of Christ.
Give us today a sense of Your great care towards us, a recognition of all You have done and a confidence in all you will do. Be among us now, we pray, through the risen Christ. Help us to hear His voice and to offer You our praise. And guide us to understand that our hope is in You alone and to live in that assurance. Lord in Your great mercy, assure us of the victory of Christ.
