A Prayer for Saturday, May 17, 2014

Twenty-Eighth Day of Easter

O God,

Thank you that, when
we were confronted with
the reality of death and with
the anxiety that it brings to life,
you did something about it
through the resurrection of Jesus.

Thank you for
every opportunity that we,
when we are confronted with
the realities of death and life
that are all around us,
have to do something about them
through the presence and power
of the resurrected Christ.

Help us to be as proactive and bold
about human crises
as you were
in the resurrection of Jesus.

Inspire us to take the power
of the resurrection that
we have experienced and
turn it loose in the world and
in the lives of those around us.
