Let those of Israel now say,His mercy faileth never.
I shall not die, but live, and shall

Prayers of the People

Leader:    Alleluia! What was dead shall live; what was dark shall shine; what was forgotten shall be remembered, for the Lord is risen and walks among us.

People:   Let us confidently bring before God the needs of all our world, asking God for renewal, saying: Christ is risen, Christ is risen indeed.

Leader:    On this feast day which brings joy to all Christian believers, may we commit ourselves to work toward the unity of the church, that Christ’s body may be one, for Christ is risen.

People:   Honoring the gift of Christ’s risen body, may we rise to serve all those whose needs keep them from seeing themselves as the image of God; for Christ is risen.

Leader:    We pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (pause).  For all who have need of the gift of Easter; for all who journey from illness to health, from despair to hope, from grief to conso­lation, from loneliness to love;

People:   For all our brothers and sisters, that death may have no more power over us, for Christ is risen.

Leader:    We remember those who have died, especially for those named in the memorial flower list, for(insert names), and for those we name silently or aloud (pause).  For all who suffer and all who mourn,

People:   That today the Lord God will wipe away all tears, for Christ is risen.

Leader:    God of life, we thank you for the mystery planted in us, the paradox of life from death and community from scattered disciples. We praise you for the dying which saves us from death and for the rising, which brings us life.


People: We pray, as we live, through Jesus the risen one, in the power of the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
