Opening Prayer: Elizabeth Truesdell


Leader: Let us be at prayer.

 God of mystery and might, your wondrous love always seems to catch us off guard.

We come to the tomb looking for death, but find life instead.

As we behold the glory of our salvation, take us back to that moment of discovery-when grief and loss gave way to a glimmer or hope.

Before we shout our alleluias, remind us of the moment when despair was transported into glimpses of new possibilities.

In the holy awe of Easter morning, we take a moment of silent gratitude that Christ calls each of us by name.
