Twenty-Fourth Day of Easter
Show us, O God, how the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ empower us to live fully in the present.
Enable us not to live in guilt over the past because in Christ our sins are forgiven.
Enable us not to live in fear over the future because in Christ our lives are secure.
Empower us to live fully in the present because we are in fact fully alive right here and right now; empower us to live in the reality of the presence of the resurrected Christ in our life, a presence that fills us with your love.
